Report fly-posting

Skip to contents of guide

Fly-posters usually advertise events with posters, stickers or bills that are put up without permission. 

How to report fly-posting

If you report fly-posting to us we can remove them if they are on:

  • public land (such as the seafront, parks or playgrounds)
  • roads
  • pavements
  • cycle lanes

When reporting fly-posting you will need to tell us:

  • the location
  • any additional information that can help us locate the issue
  • your contact details if you want us to update you

You can also upload a picture of the flyposting.

How we deal with fly-posting 

Our contracted external agency Waste Investigations Support and Enforcement (WISE) investigate both domestic and business waste fly-posting.

Where enough evidence is found, officers will trace the offenders and where appropriate, issue them with a fixed penalty notice (fine)

How you can help
