Enforcement of Waste Offences
ENFORCEMENT OF WASTE OFFENCES, INCLUDING FLY-TIPPING, AND SEIZURE OF ASSOCIATED VEHICLES WITHIN TEST VALLEY
Test Valley Borough Council has a strict approach to waste offences, including fly-tipping, carried out within the borough. Any person who fly-tips within the borough is liable to prosecution. The maximum punishment for this offence upon conviction, (for an individual), is up to 5 years imprisonment.
Further, vehicles are liable to be seized where such vehicle has been used in the commission of an offence for the unlawful disposal of controlled waste, (commonly referred to as fly-tipping) or the failure to prevent a contravention by any other person of said offence, (duty of care), or an offence of transporting controlled waste by an unregistered carrier.
