The facts about dumped rubbish (fly-tipping)

Part of: Report dumped rubbish (fly-tipping)

Did you know:

  • £3million a year is spent dealing with fly-tipping
  • large scale fly-tips can be punished with a £50,000 fine, or a prison sentence
  • if someone illegally dumps your rubbish for you, you will be fined
  • we record littering such as dumped black bags as fly-tips, which some councils do not

To keep Haringey clean we:

  • have 155 street cleaning operatives working each day
  • empty 33,000 bins every day
  • collect 495,000 bins every fortnight
  • sweep 2,142km of streets every week
  • handle 1,800 fly-tipping reports every month

More than 1,500 people use My Haringey app every month to improve our streets.
