Correspondence found in fly-tipped bag of rubbish leads to fine

Correspondence found within a fly-tipped bag of waste has led to a man from Middlesex getting fined.

Buckinghamshire County Council took Martyn Richard Hall to court for illegally dumping household waste. Hall pleaded guilty in front of Aylesbury Magistrates Court after it heard how he dumped bags of black plastic bag waste outside the gates of the household waste recycling centre.

Correspondence found within the waste helped to trace Hall. The magistrates fined Hall £565.

Local authorities are now using evidence such as letters found in fly-tipped waste to catch the culprits of waste crimes.

Buckinghamshire chairman of the waste committee Martin Tett said: People need to start realising that even one bag of dumped waste is illegal, has a removal cost to the taxpayers and is unsightly. The Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire is still as proactive as ever in our investigations of these types of cases.
