Fly tipping is still prevalent in the lanes surrounding Frome. Regular patrols both during the day and after dusk are carried out. We encourage anyone who is hiring private waste disposal for garden or building waste, to check the contractor has a waste carriers license. Do your bit to prevent your waste ending up on your lanes. If your contractor can not show you a waste carriers license and is offering waste removal please report them to trading standards and the Police on 101.
Where practically possible lock and block your gates and field entrances. Logs, boulders and ditches can all help prevent access to the fields.

Frome Neighbourhood Police is currently preparing for joint patrols with environmental health officers from Mendip District Council. We will be combining Police and Environmental Protection powers in order to carry out robust patrols. In the lead up to these patrols, we have been diligently gathering intelligence surrounding suspicious activity, people and vehicles.
Every report of suspicious activity in relation to flytipping is helping us build up the picture of who is involved with dumping waste.
If you see something that does not feel right, please report via 999 or 101.
