star this property answer text <p>The Government is not currently considering providing compensation to landowners in relation to large-scale commercial dumping of waste on private land.</p><p> </p><p>Fly-tipping is unacceptable whether it occurs on public or private land. However, fly-tipping on private land is a difficult issue. Local authorities are not under any legal obligation to clear fly-tipped waste from private property, so this responsibility falls to the landowner. Some authorities may offer a clearance service but they are likely to charge for this. If, following an investigation, a conviction is secured then the court can award compensation which covers the costs of clearance of waste to the landowner.</p> more like this
