We appreciate dealing with extra waste when the Recycling Centres are closed can be difficult; however fly tipping is unacceptable, especially under the current circumstances. Fly tipping doesn’t just scar the landscape and cause harm to wildlife, livestock and pets, but is also a hazard for our staff to clear up.
Our staffing resources are already stretched – dealing with fly tipping takes them away from critical services and potentially exposes them to COVID-19.
If you have excess waste, prioritise your smelly waste in the green bin and bag up non perishable packaging and store it until the Recycling Centres reopen.
You can report incidents of fly tipping here https://www.pkc.gov.uk/article/14829/Fly-tipping and reports will be followed up by us, SEPA and Police Scotland.
