Fly tipping prosecution
Posted on: 13 May 2015
An investigation by Mid Devon District Council Officers has resulted in the prosecution of a fly tipper at Exeter Magistrates Court.
On Monday 30th March a woman living outside of the Mid Devon area pleaded guilty to two counts of fly tipping. An investigation by the Council into reports of fly tipping in Bickleigh and Cadeleigh allowed officers to identify the offender who dumped the waste and the people who generated the waste and who then paid the offender to dispose of it. The offender was fined £400 (£200 for each offence) and ordered to pay £200 and a victim surcharge of £20.
Waste and Transport Manager, Stuart Noyce, said: “Mid Devon Enforcement Officers will always investigate fly tipping in the District. Fly tipping is a blight on the local environment and costs the local taxpayer for its clear up. Fly tipping is a criminal offence and when the investigation process provides evidence which links the offender or household to the fly tipping, enforcement action will be taken.”Posted in: Bins | Community | Environment
