Fly-tipper pays the price for dumping rubbish illegally

Another fly-tipper caught red-handed dumping waste in Buckinghamshire has been prosecuted in court.

Mansoor Hussain, 64, of Gosling Road, Slough, pleaded guilty to an offence of illegal dumping when he appeared at High Wycombe Magistrates Court on 3 August 2022.

The court heard that on Thursday 17 March 2022, waste which included cabinet doors, paint pots, a footstool and a basketball hoop, was found to have been dumped at Middle Green Road, Middle Green. Buckinghamshire Council’s enforcement team carries out regular surveillance at the location, due to the area being heavily blighted with fly-tipping. Surveillance cameras recorded the suspect’s vehicle arriving at night and the driver was filmed fly-tipping waste onto the ground.

The vehicle was traced back to Mansoor Hussain. Mr Hussain attended an interview at Slough Police Station, where he admitted to dumping the waste.

Magistrates fined Hussain £1,200 and ordered him to pay clean up and investigation costs of £415. A victim surcharge of £120 was also levied – making a total to pay of £1,735.

Jilly Jordan, Deputy Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment said: “This case should be a lesson to anyone who may be tempted to fly-tip in Buckinghamshire. Instead of disposing of his waste in the normal, legal way, this man decided to break the law and found to his detriment, that crime really doesn’t pay. His actions have cost him a hefty fine and a criminal record.”

Jilly continued: “Don’t be tempted to fly-tip, we can and will catch you and you will be prosecuted.”
