A fun sport, where there are no cows to tip.

LOL

I assume based on context, it is what we in America would call 'dumping' - when I lived in Las Vegas years ago (we left for good in 91) the desert around town, esp out by the base, was full of old TVs, washing machines, etc that folks had to pay the dump to take - so they just drove to the edge of town and dumped it.

Not all was lost, we would take our local Cub Den ut and scavange parts from the TVs to make crystal radios.

Fly-tipping is tipping anywhere other than on a tip. Usually by rivers, side of road etc.
