Fly-tipping Prosecutions - 10/05/17
Hull City Council has successfully prosecuted three residents for offences relating to fly-tipping and untidy land across the city.

Councillor Alan Clark, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood and Communities, said:

“Fly-tipping is a criminal offence, and we will not tolerate it. We are sick and tired of people who think they can just dump their waste anywhere in our city. They wouldn’t like it on their doorsteps so why leave it on other peoples? Fly tipping blights neighbourhoods. It’s hazardous to people, animals and the environment.

“By taking a tough stance on enforcement we can deter any potential offenders, and we encourage members of the public not to shrink from reporting any perpetrators they see. We will prosecute, and when convicted we will name and shame in the hope that we can stamp out this anti-social behaviour.

Stacey Jarvis of Brent Avenue, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £634.00 (£440.00 fine, £44.00 victim surcharge and £150.00 costs) after being convicted by Hull Magistrates’ in her absence of an offence contrary to section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995. This case was brought by the council following a complaint received from a member and wastes that had been found unlawfully deposited on Brent Avenue that related to the defendant. Miss Jarvis failed to attend an interview under caution and did not respond to any communications from the council in response to wastes found deposited within clear view of her address, therefore a notice was served as part of the enforcement activities under section 108 Environment Act 1995.

Paula Jane Jenkinson of Newtown Court, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £784.00 (£440.00 fine, £44.00 victim surcharge and £300.00 costs) after being convicted by Hull Magistrates’ in her absence of an offence contrary to section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995. This case was brought by the council following a complaint received from a member and wastes that had been found unlawfully deposited on Egypt Street, Hull that related to the defendant. Miss Jenkinson failed to attend an interview under caution and did not respond to any communications from the council, therefore a notice was served as part of the enforcement activities under section 108 Environment Act 1995.

Natalie Marie Simpson of Cosford Garth, Bransholme, Hull was prosecuted in her absence and was ordered to pay a total of £1,201.00 (£660.00 fine, £56.00 victim surcharge and £485.00 costs) after failing to comply with a statutory notice served in accordance with section 80 Environmental Protection Act 1990.This notice was served by the council in response to a complaint concerning the condition of the defendant’s property on Cosford Garth. This concerned a council-owned property and the presence of accumulations of household waste both on the land and within an outbuilding to the rear of the property, which was deemed to be causing a statutory nuisance. The defendant failed to respond to the notice, and works were carried out in default. The costs will be recovered by the housing department separate to this prosecution.

Liam Steven Kemp of Sedgebrook Grove, Hull pleaded guilty and received fines and costs of £220.00 (£40.00 fine, £30.00 victim surcharge, £150.00 costs) after being convicted by Hull Magistrates’ of an offence contrary to section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995. This case was brought by the council following a complaint received from a resident concerning wastes that were unlawfully deposited on Navenby Grove, Hull. Mr Kemp failed to respond to correspondence sent by the council and did not attend an interview under caution. In response to this and his failure to respond to any further communication, a decision was taken to serve a Notice as part of the enforcement activities undertaken in accordance with section 108 Environment Act 1995.

Jason Lee Myers of Sedgebrook Grove, Kingswood, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £634.00 (£440.00 fine, £44.00 victim surcharge, £150.00 costs) after being convicted by Hull Magistrates’ in his absence of an offence contrary to section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995. This case was brought by the council following a complaint received from a member concerning wastes that had been found unlawfully deposited on Kesteven Way, Hull that related to the defendant. Mr Myers failed to attend an interview under caution and did not respond to any communications from the council, therefore a Notice was served as part of the enforcement activities under section 108 Environment Act 1995.

Hannah Jayne Hatherley of Cheriton Close, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £634.00 (£440.00 fine, £44.00 victim surcharge, £150.00 costs) after being convicted by Hull Magistrates’ in his absence of an offence contrary to section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995. This case was brought by the council following a complaint received from a member concerning wastes that had been found unlawfully deposited on public land between Cheriton Close and Holwell Road, Hull that related to the defendant. Miss Hatherley failed to attend an interview under caution and did not respond to any communication from the council, therefore a Notice was served as part of the enforcement activities under section 108 Environment Act 1995.

A Hull woman from Waterloo Street, Hull has received a formal caution for an offence committed contrary to section 34(2A) Environment Protection Act 1990, following wastes having been reported to have been fly tipped on Bridlington Avenue, Hull, relating to the defendant. During an interview under caution she admitted to paying and transfer her household wastes to Mr Daniel Hallenby, who she could not prove to the council was an authorised person (a registered waste carrier regulated by the Environment Agency that is allowed to collect and transport controlled wastes for disposal or recovery). This outcome follows the conviction of Mr Daniel Hallenby (aged 23 years) of Kilburn Avenue, Hull in which he received fines and costs of £400.00 (£220.00 fine, £30.00 victim surcharge, £150.00 costs) after being convicted by Hull Magistrates’ of an offence contrary to section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995.

Councillor Clark continued:

“If you pay anyone to remove and dispose of your waste who is not a registered waste carrier and this is found fly tipped in Hull, you may face enforcement action. This could be in the form of a fixed penalty, prosecution and an unlimited fine. Furthermore, conviction means a criminal record.

“If you do pay someone to take your waste away, always ask to see a copy of their registered waste carrier’s certificate.”

To check whether someone is a registered waste carrier, please visit the Environment Agency website - www.gov.uk/find-registered-waste-carrier or call 03708 506 506.

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