New Fly-tipping Reporting Service Goes Live

Residents will be able to report fly-tips more easily thanks to an improved service from West Oxfordshire District Council.

A new online form will allow the user to pinpoint the fly-tip on an interactive map so they don’t have to spend time trying to describe the location or looking up a postcode.

That makes it is easier for the Council team to locate and with previously reported cases visible, it also means less duplication, allowing a quicker investigation and clean-up.

If a resident calls for more information about their report, the customer services team can give more detailed case information on the spot.

Cllr Norman MacRae, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “Fly-tipping is a crime as well as blight on the environment which we take very seriously.

“This system will help us not only clean up fly-tips but track down offenders and ensure they are fined accordingly.”
