The number of incidents is up for the third year in a row with a four percent increase in the year leading up to April 2016.
There were 1,490 cases of flytipping in Preston with an additional 476 in the South Ribble area.
The Local Government Association – which represents councils – says dealing with it’s taking money away from vital front line services.
The Government has given councils new powers to issue £400 on the spot fixed penalty notices to combat small-scale fly-tipping.
