To help us respond quickly, we would really appreciate as much detail as possible. If you have any evidence such as photographs, this would also be really helpful.
We will try to remove fly-tipping as quickly as possible. However, it must be noted that the Council will not remove fly-tipping from privately owned property. In these cases, we will request that the landowner removes the fly-tipped items.
Fly-tipping that has been found in water is managed by The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). If it is on a motorway or trunk road, it is the responsibility of Transport Scotland who maintains and monitor the trunk road network across Scotland
Please note: Our Customer Service Team responds to enquiries Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. If you email out with these timescales, you will need to wait for a response. If you need to report an emergency, please call 01786 404040 and our emergency out of hour’s team will support you.
Fly-tipping is a crime. If you see someone fly-tipping please report the details to Police Scotland via 101.
If you are caught fly-tipping, you will be fined £200 up to £40,000 and could face up to 6 months in prison.
Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste onto land that has no licence to accept it. This may include a bin bag of household rubbish to large quantities of tyres or construction waste. Stirling Council works with our internal and external partners to identify people who are disposing of waste illegally. This includes the use of CCTV.
Stirling Council has three Household Recycling Centres at Lower Polmaise, Balfron and Callander where householders can take unwanted goods free of charge and we will collect bulky items for disposal from people's homes, at a charge. A high proportion of the material dropped off with us is now recycled.
