Wirral builder found guilty of fly tipping

A Wirral man has been prosecuted this week at Scarborough Magistrates Court, North Yorkshire, for fly tipping.  Fred Cook, a builder, of Seaview Road, Wallasey, was convicted for using an unauthorised waste carrier to dispose of waste he produced while renovating a property in Scarborough. The rubbish was later found fly tipped in the nearby Wykeham forestry area.

Cook was fined £1000 and ordered to pay £1232 in costs, £100 victim surcharge and £180 courts charge, totalling £2512.

This latest conviction comes as Scarborough Borough Council ramps up its crack down on those responsible for fly tipping and littering across the area.  Harry Briggs, Scarborough Borough Council Recycling and Waste Enforcement Manager, said:- "The countryside around our borough is beautiful. It's loved by those who live here and those from all over the country that choose to holiday here, so we take a firm stance on people dumping rubbish and spoiling our area. This case took a long time to investigate with our waste enforcement team working very closely with our legal team to produce this court result. Fly tipping is a serious matter and we will continue to prosecute offenders to the fullest extent of the law. The prosecution should act as a deterrent to any tradesman. Don't forget, if you use someone who is not properly registered and dumps your rubbish, you too can be held responsible. We urge anyone wanting to remove waste from their home or business to check that the removal company has an authorised waste carriers licence."

Checks to make sure a waste carrier is authorised can be made online. Anyone can report incidents of fly tipping in confidence by contacting the Council's Customer First team via email or by calling:- 01723 232323.
