Woman to pay more than £1,000 for dumping rubbish near wheelie bins

A woman from Bridlington has been ordered to pay a total of £1,375.04 for fly-tipping rubbish next to wheelie bins. 

Kirsty Hall, of Bessingby Gate, dumped bags of household waste next to bins near her home in the town. 

Hall did not appear at court and did not enter a plea, so the case was heard in her absence at Beverley Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 31st January. 

For abandoning waste, she was fined £660 and was ordered to pay £451.05 costs and a £264 victim surcharge. 

The court heard the bags of household waste were found next to bins in Bessingby Gate on 24th April last year. 

Streetscene enforcement officers from East Riding of Yorkshire Council found evidence in the bags relating to Hall’s address. 

The council sent letters to Hall but received no response, and therefore the case was taken to court. 

Residents are reminded they are responsible for disposing of their own waste properly and legally by using household bins provided or taking larger items of waste to their local household waste recycling site, which in this case is nearby in Carnaby. 

Carl Skelton, director of streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Reports of fly-tipping from the public are extremely important is helping us find those responsible. 

“We will continue to investigate every incident of fly-tipping reported to us 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.
