Four residents prosecuted for fly tipping and littering offences - 12/09/16
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 or littered 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:

  • Mr Daniel-Alexandru Coroianu (aged 28 years) of Selkirk Street, Hull was prosecuted and fined a total of £355 (£190 fine, £65 clean up costs and £100 costs) for the unlawful abandonment of wastes, contrary to section 2 Refuse Disposal (Amenity) Act 1978 on Walton Street Car Park, Walton Street, Hull.

  • Miss Kelly Suzanne Cain (aged 39 years) of Belmont Street, Hull was prosecuted and fined 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 Belmont Street, Hull and Miss Cain 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.

  • Mr Tadeusz Bukowski of Spring Bank, Hull was prosecuted and fined a total of £342 (£220 fine, £22 victim surcharge and £100 costs) for a littering offence committed on West Parade, Hull.

  • Miss Leanne Gleadow (aged 39 years) of Chadcourt, Hull was prosecuted and fined a total of £342 (£220 fine, £22 victim surcharge and £100 costs) for a littering offence committed on Jameson Street, Hull.

    Councillor Clark, continued:

    ""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.""
