Three Hull residents prosecuted for fly tipping - 24/08/16
Hull City Council has successfully prosecuted three Hull residents for offences relating to wastes found fly tipped within the city.

All prosecutions led to a substantial fine and a criminal record for the wastes found tipped unlawfully.

Councillor Alan Clark, portfolio holder for Neighbourhoods and Communities, said: ""Fly tipping is a criminal offence, and we will not tolerate it. Not only does it blight the environment but it is also a risk to wildlife, and the public's health and wellbeing.

""By taking a tough stance on enforcement we can deter any potential offenders and we encourage members of the public to report any perpetrators they see, because any evidence we have will contribute towards a successful prosecution.""

Hull City Council prosecuted the following people at Hull Magistrates' Court:

Miss Marzena Domaszewska (aged 37 years) of Boynton Street, Hull

Prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £392 (£220 fine, £22 victim surcharge and £150 costs) for failing to comply with a Statutory Notice served in accordance with section 108 Environment Act 1995.

This Notice was served by the Council, in response to evidence provided by a resident who saw the wastes being unlawfully deposited and inspection of wastes found deposited on Boulevard, Hull and Miss Domaszewska having failed to attend a scheduled interview under caution and further correspondence having been sent in regards to the wastes found by the Council.

The decision to serve this Notice is taken when the Local Authority consider it requires persons to provide information in writing, in response to questions specified within the Notice served, which it reasonably considers is required as part of its enforcement activities.

Miss Samantha Fitzgerald (aged 34 years) of Anlaby Park Road North, Hull

Prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £392 (£220 fine, £22 victim surcharge and £150 costs) for failing to comply with a Statutory Notice served in accordance with section 108 Environment Act 1995.

This Notice was served by the Council, in response to wastes having been found deposited on Anlaby Park Road North, Hull and Miss Fitzgerald having failed to attend a scheduled interview under caution and further correspondence having been sent in regards to the wastes found by the Council.

The decision to serve this Notice is taken when the Local Authority consider it requires persons to provide information in writing, in response to questions specified within the Notice served, which it reasonably considers is required as part of its enforcement activities.

Miss Magdalena Anna Kniffel (aged 26 years) of Croften Avenue, Egton Street, Hull

Prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £392 (£220 fine, £22 victim surcharge and £150 costs) for failing to comply with a Statutory Notice served in accordance with section 108 Environment Act 1995.

This Notice was served by the Council, in response to wastes having been found deposited on Redcar Street, Hull and Miss Kniffel having failed to attend a scheduled interview under caution and further correspondence having been sent in regards to the wastes found by the Council. The decision to serve this Notice is taken when the Local Authority consider it requires persons to provide information in writing, in response to questions specified within the Notice served, which it reasonably considers is required as part of its enforcement activities.

Councillor Clark, continued: ""Where we are unable to recognise the owners of fly tipping, we will be using our CCTV cameras to publish any images of suspected fly-tippers and calling on the public to help identify them.

""By working together to tackle these problems we will help to make a huge, positive difference to the local environment and make the city a cleaner, safer and heather place for people to live, work and visit.""

Waste can be dropped off at a number of locations across the city, including the three household waste and recycling centres at Burma Drive, Sutton Fields and Wiltshire Road, and every household is entitled to one free bulky item collection a year of up to five items.

Dumping is a crime, help us and make those who do it pay for it. See it, report it, stop it.
