FLY-TIPPERS have been warned they face enforcement action after items including a washing machine were dumped in Inverkeithing.

Investigations are currently ongoing after the latest episode where waste has been disposed of at Inverkeithing Quarry. CCTV is one of the ways which Fife Council hopes to identify the culprits.

Safer communities team manager Dawn Jamieson urged West Fifers to get rid of their rubbish in the correct manner.

“Unfortunately, in these challenging times, when our services are already under pressure, there are a growing number of reports of fly-tipping around Fife," she said.

"Everyone is responsible for their own waste and must dispose of their rubbish responsibly.

"We're aware that rubbish has been dumped in Inverkeithing Quarry and are currently investigating. CCTV cameras can be used as a deterrent and enforcement action may be taken against people who commit this type of offence.

"There's no excuse for fly-tipping, which is a blatant disregard of the law and of our outdoor environment. No-one wants to see rubbish dumped, and it has a direct impact on the condition of our roads, parks, wildlife and communities.

"Our recycling centres are open and we would urge people to make use of these facilities and dispose of recyclable waste responsibly. Please also check that anyone you ask to take your waste away is properly registered to do so.

"Help keep Fife a great place to live, work and visit. Report fly-tipping by filling out the form at and we'll take the appropriate action."
