Fly-tippers Fined

Fly-tippers literally dump on their communities so its good to report culprits being caught in the act.


A fixed penalty notice of £300 was issued when a man was caught fly-tipping garden waste by CCTV in a country lane.

The man was interviewed and admitted fly-tipping and paid the fine. These fixed penalty notices are issued for smaller instances of fly-tipping of domestic waste where the offender is co-operative throughout our investigation.

In a separate case we prosecuted a builder whose vehicle was seen dumping a ton of building waste on Crete Road West.

A witness came forward so we were able to put the case before the Magistrates who ordered the builder, as owner of the vehicle, to do 150 hours of unpaid work, to pay costs of £630 and a victim surcharge of £85.

If you witness fly-tipping please report it.
