Street cleaning


The Council is responsible for the investigation and removal of fly-tipping from public land. Large quantities of waste left in water may be dealt with by the Environment Agency

If you witness someone fly-tipping, please make a note of any details and vehicle registration as this will be useful if legal action is to be taken.

Report it

Report fly-tipping to us here.

We will need: 

  • as many details about the fly-tipping
  • your name
  • your phone number

Please note that we only clear fly-tipping from public land.

Recycling centres

North Yorkshire County Council continues to operate twenty household waste recycling centres, commonly known as tips, within North Yorkshire.

To find the location, opening times and materials accepted at your local site please visit the North Yorkshire County Council website.
