This was the scene earlier this afternoon in the lay-by heading out east towards Huntly.

.

Anyone caught fly-tipping in Scotland can be subject to a fixed penalty of up to £200.

If you discover dumped waste report it to Moray Council here.

On its website the local authority advises that:

If you discover fly tipped waste

Don’t:

  • touch the waste - it may contain syringes, broken glass, asbestos, toxic chemicals or other hazardous substances.
  • disturb the site; there may be evidence that could help identify the fly tippers and lead to their prosecution.

Do:

  • visually try to work out what the waste consists of and how much there is.
  • make a note of the day, date and time you saw the tipping, its exact location and whether it is in or near water.

If you see someone fly tipping

Make a note of:

  • how many people are involved and what they look like.
  • what has been tipped - how much and what it looks like.
  • details of any vehicles involved including make, colour and registration number if possible.
