Tougher sanctions introduced in Redbridge against fly-tippers

Redbridge Council have introduced steeper penalties for fly-tippers

Tougher sanctions have been introduced in Redbridge against fly-tipping offenders.

Community support for tougher action against fly-tippers has triggered steeper penalties for those caught making a mess in Redbridge.

Anyone caught dumping their rubbish in the borough now faces a £1000 on the spot fine for fly-tipping.

The council is introducing the hard-hitting fine following a change to legislation last year, and in response to feedback from local people.

A recent boroughwide survey revealed that clean and tidy neighbourhoods, and tougher action for fly-tipping were among the top priorities for local people. The responses were collated from Redbridge Council’s boroughwide Budget Survey 2024/25.

As part of the drive towards creating a cleaner Redbridge, £200 on the spot fines for littering, and £500 on the spot fines for graffiti or flyposting are also on the cards for anyone caught committing these offences.

The series of new fines came into effect on Thursday, 1 February and is aimed at deterring people from harming public spaces and ensuring that those who continue to pollute streets with fly-tips or litter face tougher consequences.

Redbridge Cabinet Member for Enforcement and Community Safety, Cllr Khayer Chowdhury, said: “Dumping rubbish and wrecking our environment is a criminal offence, and we won’t tolerate it as a community. We know local people want us to take a strong stance against fly-tipping and other environmental crimes so we’re introducing steeper fines as a deterrent, alongside court prosecutions and other initiatives to help keep the borough clean and tidy.”

Fly-tippers in the borough can be reported online through the council’s Report It page.
