Man admits flytipping offence

A Herefordshire man has been ordered to pay costs of more than £300 after admitting an offence of flytipping.

Mark Kendrick, 43, of Cherrybrook Close, Hope-under-Dinmore, admitted at Hereford magistrates Court yesterday (February 23) an offence of flytipping household waste at Croft Lane caravan park.

This is an offence under Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and he was ordered to pay £345.56 in costs and a victim surcharge of £15 as well as being given a conditional discharge for 12 months.

Craig Sandman, team leader for Herefordshire Council’s community protection team, said after the case: “Fly tipping causes a major eyesore in our otherwise beautiful county and when offences have been committed we will not hesitate to prosecute.

“I hope the large amount of costs awarded in this case will serve as a deterrent to anyone else who is considering fly tipping.

“The council not only offers a weekly collection for household waste but also has five household waste and recycling centres throughout the county so there is no excuse for fly tipping at all,” he added.
