Flytipper pays the penalty

Enderby Flytipping offence

A resident who flytipped two fridges on a village pavement has been given the first flytipping fixed penalty notice by Blaby District Council’s Environmental Health team.

The two fridges were dumped on Moores Lane, Enderby, back in May. A vigilant resident came forward to offer a witness statement after seeing the offence take place. After investigation from the Council’s Environmental Health officers, the flytipper was bought in for an interview under caution and admitted the offence.

A £400 fine was issued in what is the first penalty of its kind in the district since new powers were given to tackle small scale flytipping within the district. Fixed penalty notices are seen as an alternative to taking some flytippers to court.

Councillor Iain Hewson, Portfolio Holder for Health Improvement, Leisure & Regulatory Services, said: “We hope this news gives confidence to residents to come forward if they witness any offences take place, and also emphasises just how seriously we take flytipping. 

“These fridges could have been disposed of legally less than two miles away at Leicestershire County Council’s Whetstone Tip. Instead the flytipper has paid a £400 fine for his selfish actions.”

Residents who witness flytipping can report is online by visiting, emailing or calling 0116 272 7555.
