Man fined after household waste found fly-tipped

Press release   •   Jun 19, 2014 11:41 BST

A Radcliffe man who arranged a house clearance has been fined after the goods were found fly-tipped in three locations.

Leyton Taylor (aged 27) of Dingle Close paid £150 to a ‘man with van’ to take away household waste from a property in Whitefield which was owned by a family member.

But documents relating to the Whitefield address were found in rubbish fly-tipped in January and February this year, incidents which were reported to the council by members of the public. The waste had been dumped on a public right of way near Cockey Moor Road, Ainsworth; in Wenning Close, Whitefield; and on a private road near Radcliffe New Road, Radcliffe.

At Bury Magistrates Court on 10 July 2014, Taylor pleaded guilty to a charge of failing to take sufficient measures to ensure that the person taking his waste was authorised to do so, which led to the waste being fly-tipped.

He was fined £100 and must also pay costs of £300 and a victim surcharge of £20.
