Fly-tipping prosecutions - 11/12/17
Four residents have been successfully prosecuted for a number of environmental crimes across the city.

Shaun Doherty of Selby Street, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £2,066 (£1,500 fine, £516.04 costs and £50 victim surcharge) for offences contrary to Section 33(1) Environmental Protection Act 1990 and Section 34(1) Environmental Protection Act 1990 and section 1(1) Control of Pollution Act (Amended) 1989. This case was brought forward following a complaint received about waste that had been found dumped on Redbourne Street, Hull. Following an investigation, evidence was found linking the waste to ‘Not Just for Pets’ on Chanterlands Avenue. It was then traced back to Mr Doherty who admitted accepting payment to dispose of the waste. Mr Doherty was not a registered waste carrier and did not possess a permit to remove and transport controlled wastes.

Jamie Steven Marynicz of Riston Street, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £325 (£220 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £75 costs) by Hull Magistrates Court for an offence contrary to Section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995. This case was brought forward following a complaint received from a member of the public concerning wastes found unlawfully deposited on Boulevard, Hull. Mr Marynicz failed to attend an interview under caution and did not respond to any communications from the Council. As a result a decision was taken to serve a notice as part of the enforcement in accordance with Section 108 Environment Act 1995.

Kelly Pearson of Riston Street, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £325 (£220 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £75 costs) by Hull Magistrates for an offence contrary to Section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995. This case was brought forward following a complaint received from a member of the public concerning wastes found unlawfully deposited on Boulevard, Hull. Miss Pearson failed to attend an interview under caution and did not respond to any communications from the Council. As a result a decision was taken to serve a notice as part of the enforcement in accordance with Section 108 Environment Act 1995.
Paul Bailey, trading ‘All About Roofing’ of Marlborough Avenue, Princes Avenue, Hull was prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of £480 (£300 fine, £30 victim surcharge and £150 costs) for failing to comply with a statutory notice served under Section 34 Environmental Protection Act 1990. This was served by the Council in response to a complaint concerning wastes deposited on Arthur Street, Hull.

Councillor Clark, portfolio holder with responsibility for enforcement, said:

“Fly-tipping is a criminal offence, and we will not tolerate it. Fly-tipping blights neighbourhoods, is 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.

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