MK man ordered to pay over £1,500 for dumping illegal waste

A road sweeper from Neath Hill working for a private Leighton Buzzard business has been ordered to pay over £1,531 in fines and costs for illegally dumping waste from his vehicle at the entrance of MK Bowl.

The man pleaded guilty to three offences of illegal waste dumping when he appeared in front of Milton Keynes Magistrates on Friday 11 March 2022.

The court heard that on three occasions between 12 January 2021 and 9 April 2021, CCTV cameras monitoring a fly tipping hotspot at the entrance to the Bowl captured images of the man’s road sweeper entering the area and emptying his tank onto public land.

Cabinet Member for the Public Realm, Cllr Lauren Townsend said, “We will take action and prosecute people who think it’s acceptable to dump waste illegally in MK.”

“We want MK to be a clean and green environment for everyone, and this man is just one of many offenders we have caught fly tipping with our CCTV cameras.”
