Bridlington man fined for fly-tipping after furniture dumped in the street

A man from Bridlington has been fined for dumping furniture on the street near his home. 

Bradley Mitchell of Britannia Road, Bridlington, was responsible for abandoning a bed base, headboard, pieces of furniture and wood in Britannia Road in June last year. 

Mitchell pleaded guilty at Beverley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 9 March to illegally disposing of waste on land in Bridlington on or around 29 July last year. 

He was fined £120, ordered to pay costs of £414 and a victim surcharge of £48. 

The court heard streetscene enforcement officers at East Riding of Yorkshire Council received a report of waste dumped in Britannia Road on 29 June last year. 

The site was inspected and the waste was cleared by the council. 

Investigations led the officers to Mitchell. 

East Riding of Yorkshire Council continues to remind residents they are responsible for disposing of their own waste properly and legally by using their household bins or by taking rubbish to their local household waste recycling site. 

For larger loads they can also hire a licensed waste carrier to take the rubbish away, or they can use the council’s own bulky waste collection service. 

Carl Skelton, acting director of streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Thanks to the public for reporting this incident to us. We rely on their help to prevent fly-tipping and to catch those responsible. 

“We will investigate fly-tipping incidents and always take action when we can.” 

Anyone caught fly-tipping could be ordered to pay a £400 fixed penalty notice, or the case could be taken to court where they face an unlimited fine or even imprisonment. 

Residents can report any fly-tipping or suspicious activity to the council on 01482 393939, or online at www.eastriding.gov.uk/fly-tipping
