The following message is from West Oxfordshire District Council.
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.”

The Parish Council has produced the attached document for your assistance.
This can be cut into 4 separate notes.
Message from West Oxfordshire District Council
Residents are being urged to avoid contaminating their recycling bins with ordinary waste.
This week a growing number of collections have been mixed with a variety of non-recyclable items such as textiles, food and nappies.
It means the contamination has to be painstakingly removed before being sent off to be incinerated – a process that can cost thousands of pounds.
Cllr Norman MacRae, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “We understand that with most residents at home, more waste is being generated but removing it is a costly and potentially hazardous process, particularly at this time.
“Please ensure your waste is put in the correct bin and store any excess recycling if necessary. If it is contaminated it may not be collected making the situation worse.”
Waste crews are instructed to check bins and leave a tag if they are contaminated asking the resident to re-sort it.
For a reminder of which bins to use see:
There have been blockages in the local sewer system which runs across the ‘Curbridge Triangle’.
Can residents please ensure non-appropriate items are not flushed/washed into the system. In particular wet wipes have been an identified problem.
Please refer to Thames Water website for further information.
