Mansfield fly-tipper ordered to do unpaid work and pay compensation

A Mansfield man has been ordered by magistrates to complete 100 hours of unpaid work and pay more than £200 in compensation for two offences of fly-tipping.

Jamie Lee Carter, 21, of Willoughby Court, Mansfield, admitted two separate offences contrary to Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Mansfield Magistrates' Court was informed that on the first occasion, 4 January 2017, household waste consisting of food, cans of paint, documentation, suitcases, toys, bottles, pictures, fence panels, bags of dried cement, electric fans, plastic trim, black bags and carrier bags were deposited from a large flatbed van at Black Scotch Lane in Mansfield.

The second offence took place on 31 January 2017, at Willoughby Court, when two car seats and a wooden door were fly-tipped.

Both fly-tips were found by a neighbourhood warden who was on patrol.

The defendant was also found to have been driving unsupervised on a provisional licence with no L plates and no insurance.

After hearing the details, magistrates reminded him about the seriousness of the offences and said that he had not thought about the impact of his actions on the community.

In relation to two offences of depositing controlled waste, they imposed a community order for 12 months of 100 hours of unpaid work. They also ordered Carter to pay £232.99 compensation to Mansfield District Council for the clear up costs incurred.

In relation to two offences of using a vehicle whilst uninsured, an offence under section 143 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, they imposed 12 penalty points and disqualified Carter from driving for nine months.

No additional penalty was imposed for two offences of driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence, an offence under section 87 Road Traffic Act 1990.​

Cllr Bill Drewett, Portfolio Holder for Safer Communities said: "Fly-tipping is a crime as well as being a blight on the landscape and a health and safety hazard. Mansfield District Council will not tolerate fly-tipping and we will aim to bring perpetrators to court whenever we can. We want to make it clear that it is totally unacceptable to dispose of waste in this way."
