If you recognise anyone in the YouTube video, email flytipwitness@wandsworth.gov.uk  with the reference number of people dumping rubbish on Mellison Road, Tooting. Together we can catch fly-tip offenders.

Litter blights our streets, parks and town centres. It’s not acceptable, and residents have told us that tackling this is a key priority for them. To address this head-on, the council is clamping down on those who think they can get away with this illegal behaviour.  

CCTV footage of people illegally dumping rubbish has been published on our YouTube channel, asking local residents to give the council any information they have about the fly-tippers in the videos.

Councillor Steffi Sutters, environment spokesman said,  "We spend more than £4 million a year, keeping the borough looking clean and tidy, picking up litter and removing fly-tips.  

“To help tackle this issue, we’ve launched our ‘Caught on Camera’ appeal as part of our MyWandsworth campaign, to keep the borough looking at its best. 

"I'd like to thank everyone who has contacted me to show their support, it's great to hear that so many of you are backing this initiative. 

"We want to show the irresponsible few that they can't get away with dumping rubbish illegally. So please do continue to show you support by sharing the videos, or getting in touch with any information about the fly-tip offenders." 

Report fly-tip offenders
Remember you don’t need to see the videos to report fly-tip offenders. You can also report an incident by telling us what you saw or sending a picture in.

Tell us:

  • The circumstances, e.g. if you saw the fly-tipping, the date and time it took place and a description of any vehicles involved, plus registration number.
  • Take a picture of the incident, making sure you don’t put yourself or others at risk to do this.
  • Location: side of the road, back alleyway, railway embankment, in a river, and whether it was on private or council land.
  • The amount and type of waste, eg a few bags of rubbish, a fridge, a sofa.
