Flights Against Fly-Tipping: Drones keeping landscapes clean

Drone training for councils, reduce waste, fly tipping

Councils confront persistent challenges in monitoring fly-tipping, necessitating innovative solutions for effective detection. Traditional surveillance methods have proven inadequate in addressing this issue comprehensively. Drones can be used to address these challenges, and our drone training courses will equip council workers with the necessary skills to monitor, detect, and respond fly-tipping offenders. Working with us offers strategic opportunity to leverage cutting-edge technology, enhance capabilities, and achieve significant cost savings while fostering environmental stewardship and community safety.


Fly-tipping continues to pose significant environmental and financial burdens for Councils, requiring a multifaceted approach to detection and prevention. Despite ongoing efforts, the council faces limitations, particularly in remote or inaccessible areas. As such, there is a pressing need to explore innovative solutions that leverage emerging technologies to augment traditional surveillance methods.

How Can We Help?

Our training courses can be catered to your bespoke needs, and as such, we can deliver comprehensive training to council workers responsible for fly-tipping surveillance.

Our training with you will encompass:

In-depth instruction on RPAS operation, flight procedures, and safety protocols.

Hands-on training in camera operation and image analysis techniques to identify and document fly-tipping incidents.

Legal and regulatory compliance training to ensure adherence to aviation regulations and evidence-collection standards.

Risk assessment and mitigation strategies to address potential safety and operational challenges associated with RPAS deployment.

Ethical considerations and community engagement strategies to foster transparency and public trust.

But What are the Benefits of Using Drones?

  • Enhanced detection
    Drone technology enables efficient aerial surveillance of fly-tipping hotspots, facilitating the detection of illegal dumping activities in remote or inaccessible areas.
  • Improved evidence collection
    High-resolution imagery and video footage captured by drone provide compelling evidence to support external prosecution efforts.
  • Cost savings
    By deterring fly-tipping and streamlining surveillance processes, the council can reduce expenditures related to cleanup, disposal, and legal proceedings.
  • Environmental protection
    Timely detection enables faster removal of illegally dumped waste and mitigates environmental damage, promoting the preservation of natural habitats.
