Friday 5 October

Taking action against fly-tippers

A Sittingbourne man is more than £750 out of pocket after household waste, was found dumped in Lynsted.

Daniel Walters, of Wild Ash Croft, was prosecuted by Swale Borough Council after waste was dumped at Bogle Lane.

Council officers traced the waste back to Walters who admitted the offence of fly-tipping.

Mr Walters pleaded guilty to charges of fly-tipping and failing to produce waste transfer notes at Medway Magistrates Court on Monday, 1 October, and was fined £525, ordered to pay £200 costs and a victim surcharge of £32.

Cllr David Simmons, cabinet member for environment and rural affairs at the council, said:

"People are sick of seeing other people’s rubbish illegally dumped around the borough.

"We are determined to do all we can to track down those who fly-tip, and take the necessary legal action against them.

"I strongly urge people to check who is taking their waste, make sure they’re licenced, and keep invoices and receipts so you can help us trace them if waste is dumped.

To check whether someone is licenced to carry waste visit the Environment Agency website or call 03708 506506.
