Article 5379 | Published - January 21st, 2019

South Gloucestershire Council Fly tipping advice.

Statistics show that anyone fly-tipping in South Gloucestershire is five times more likely* to be successfully prosecuted than anywhere else in the country and our award-winning envirocrime team have a 100 per cent record of securing successful prosecutions for this type of offence.”

Residents and businesses are advised to only give their rubbish to an Environment Agency registered waste carrier.

Contractors should ensure that they hold a Registered Waste Carriers Licence and they comply with the Waste Transfer Note requirements.

You can carry out these simple steps to make sure your waste is disposed of legally:

• Ask for a copy of the company’s waste carrier registration certificate and ask where the waste is being taken. Legitimate firms will be happy to provide this information

• Do not be tempted to use people offering cheap waste clearance on sites such as Facebook and Gumtree unless you have confirmed that they are registered with the Environment Agency

• Check whether the waste carrier is registered by calling the Environment Agency on 08708 506506 or by checking on their website https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/index

• Ask for a registered trading address and contact telephone number for the trader and get a receipt

• Unwanted goods and household or garden waste can all be disposed of at no cost via the Council’s Sort It centres.

Residents who see illegal fly-tipping are encouraged to report it by using our web form at www.southglos.gov.uk/flytipping or emailing streetcare@southglos.gov.uk or contacting the Street Care helpdesk on 01454 868000.

We’d like to start the New Year off with a chance to network, share what’s going well and get some good ideas from others about volunteering.


There is plenty of free parking at Coniston Community Centre and the 75 bus route stops at The Parade in Patchway which is directly next to the community centre.

There room is on the first floor and there is a lift to access it.


From feedback at the previous forums the topic for discussion will be on removing barriers to volunteering. It will be an interactive session identifying the current barriers you and your volunteers face in your volunteer programme. Together we’ll then examine what could be done to reduce and remove these in your organisation.
