Woman Must Pay £300 For Fly-Tipping

6th December 2017
News

A woman who pleaded guilty to fly-tipping has been ordered to pay out £300 by a court.

24 year old Elisha Rolfe admitted being responsible for allowing household waste, consisting of refuse sacks, clothing and packaging, to be dumped in Brake Lane, Boughton, near Ollerton.

 

Among the dumped items a Newark and Sherwood District Council waste management inspector discovered was evidence which identified the defendant.

 

This was collected along with photographs of the waste that had been disposed of and Ms Rolfe, of Manvers View, Boughton, was twice invited to attend an interview with council officers to discuss the matter but failed to respond.

 

Under the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, householders have a legal duty to take all such measures available to secure that waste produced on the premises is transferred only to an authorised person for disposal.

 

Ms Rolfe was fined £120 when she appeared before Mansfield Magistrates on November 30 and must pay a victim surcharge of £30.  She was also ordered to contribute to the council’s costs in the sum of £150.  The total fine is to be recovered from her benefits and a collection order has been attached if she should default.

 

Matt Adey, Newark and Sherwood District Council’s Assistant Business Manager – Waste Management, said: “We do not tolerate fly-tipping in Newark and Sherwood and where we can identify a culprit, we will take action. The defendant was given the opportunity to explain her actions but failed to do so, leaving us with no option other than to prosecute.”
