The Hill > Environment > Flytipping
It's a menace! What can you do about it?

Recently, the problem of rubbish dumped on the pavements - household refuse, discarded white goods, furniture and so on - has been on the increase.

The Telegraph Hill Society has made this issue a priority this year. This site already has some pages on environmental issues (see links on the left) and is being gradually improved.

Flytipping - dumping rubbish on the streets or on someone else's land without permission - is illegal, thanks in part to our own MP, Joan Ruddock, who introduced the Control of Pollution (Amendment) Act in 1989.

To report fly tipping and rubbish dumping please call EnviroCall on 020 8314 7171. The people there are knowledgeable and helpful.
