Out of town fly tipper fined £1,500

A Northampton man who pretended to be a registered waste carrier has been ordered to pay £1,500 in fines and costs for dumping waste illegally in Milton Keynes.

He was paid a £100 by a resident in Northamptonshire to dispose of their waste properly, but Woughton Community Council discovered the dumped rubbish on Rainbow Drive in Leadenhall.

Following an investigation by Milton Keynes City Council, the case was brought to Milton Keynes Magistrates Court where the offender pleaded guilty to illegally dumping waste and transporting the rubbish without being a registered carrier. He was fined £733, and ordered to pay the city council’s legal fees of £521 and a victim surcharge of £293.

“We will not tolerate fly tipping in our city and we take action to crack down on fly tippers. In the last 18 months we’ve put forward 50 cases for prosecution and issued hundreds more Fixed Penalty Notices. We’ll continue to work with parish and town councils and other partners to track down the offenders who disrespect our green spaces and communities.” - Cllr Lauren Townsend, Cabinet Member for the Public Realm

“We are pleased that our hard work for the residents of Woughton has paid off and that the person responsible for dumping this rubbish in our community has been caught. We will continue to work with colleagues at Milton Keynes City Council to ensure no offenders get away with disrespecting our estates and green spaces in this way." - Cllr Donna Fuller, Councillor in the ward and Leader of Woughton Community Council
