Seven residents prosecuted for environmental crimes - 25/08/17
Seven residents have been successfully prosecuted for a number of environmental crimes across the city.

Stephany Lynnette Broderick of Mayfield Street, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £350 (£120 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £200 costs) for an offence contrary to section 34(2A) Environmental Protection Act 1990. This case was brought by the Council following evidence being obtained via CCTV footage. Following an investigation by enforcement officers a prosecution was brought to Hull Magistrates’ Court. Miss Broderick pleaded guilty for failing to take reasonable measures to ensure her household waste were transferred to an authorised waste carrier, who should have been registered with the Environment Agency.

Councillor Clark, Portfolio Holder with responsibility for Enforcement, said:

“The case of Miss Broderick serves as a stark reminder that residents should establish whether a person is authorised to take their waste away, before paying them.

“Always ask to see a registered waste carrier’s certificate and check them out with the Environment Agency to ensure that you are not engaging in this illegal activity, as failure to do so will result in an offence.”

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.

Stephen Kevin Barr of Millport Drive, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £1,026 (£660 fine, £66 victim surcharge, £200 costs and clean-up costs of £100) for the deposit and unlawful abandonment of waste on Mayfield Street in Hull, contrary to section 2(1)(a) Refuse Disposal (Amenity) Act 1978. This prosecution was investigated by enforcement officers after evidence of a person fly-tipping was gathered via CCTV footage. After the person was identified, a fixed penalty notice was issued however Mr Barr failed to respond and this matter was referred for prosecution.

Amy Lee of Colenso Villas, Barnsley Street, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £1,121.67 (£750 fine, £75 victim surcharge, £250 costs and default costs of £46.67) for continuing to fail to comply with a statutory notice served under Section 80 Environmental Protection Act 1990. This notice was served by the Council in response to a complaint failing to address the condition of her property. It was deemed to be causing a statutory nuisance following the accumulation of dog faeces and she was previously prosecuted for the same offence. However no action had been taken and she failed to respond to any correspondence from the Council. As a result, works were carried out in default. These costs were subsequently recovered by the Council as part of its prosecution.

Jack Ray Adamson of Walker Street, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £345 (£220 fine and £125 costs) in response to a littering offence from a vehicle on Greenwood Avenue, Hull, contrary to section 87 Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Patrycja Zaremba trading as Home & Furniture of Beverley Road, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £1,247.33 (£440 fine, £44 victim surcharge, £250 costs and default costs of £513.33) for five offences under the Section 48 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. This notice had been served by the Council in response to complaints regarding the condition of her property and the detrimental effect it was having on the surrounding neighbourhood. The defendant failed to respond to any formal warning or legal notice, and works were carried out in default. These costs were subsequently recovered by the Council as part of its prosecution.

Jacek Silwa of Newstead Street, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £405 (£250 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £125 costs) for the deposit and unlawful abandonment of waste near Hardwick Street and Thorseby Street in Hull, contrary to section 2(1)(a) Refuse Disposal (Amenity) Act 1978.
CCTV evidence revealed that Mr Silwa had fly-tipped waste, and a £200 fixed penalty notice was issued in line with Section 33ZA Environmental Protection Act 1990. He failed to respond and the matter was referred for prosecution.

Radoslan Silwa of Newstead Street, Hull was also prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £405 (£250 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £125 costs) for the deposit and unlawful abandonment of waste near Hardwick Street and Thorseby Street in Hull, contrary to section 2(1)(a) Refuse Disposal (Amenity) Act 1978. CCTV evidence revealed that Mr Silwa had fly-tipped waste, and a £200 fixed penalty notice was issued in line with Section 33ZA Environmental Protection Act 1990. He failed to respond and the matter was referred for prosecution.

Councillor Clark continued:

“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.

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