Abandoned vehicles

How and when to report an abandoned vehicle. 

Abandoned vehicles

Dog fouling

Dog fouling is a big concern, not just because of the mess it causes, but because it can also be a health risk.

Dog fouling

Dead animals

The Council can remove dead animals for free, from all public accessible areas and private residential properties.

To report a dead animal in a public place or to make an arrangement for a dead animal to be collected from your home, call the Customer Contact Centre on 0191 427 7000.


Fly-posting is an illegal, anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area and contributes to people's fear of crime.

If you see someone committing a fly-posting offence or need to notify us of fly-posting, report it.

Report fly posting


Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste and is a crime.

All kinds of waste are fly-tipped, the most common being household waste.


Graffiti removal

Graffiti vandalism is not just an unsightly mess. It is against the law, a cost to you and your neighbours and a drain on the services provided by South Tyneside Council and South Tyneside Homes.



The Council is responsible for sweeping and removing litter, household bins and graffiti in South Tyneside.

Report litter
