Residents Fined For Dumping Rubbish

Tuesday September 11 2012



TWO Barnsley residents have been fined for fly-tipping after appearing before Magistrates Court.

Haley Bunney, 23, of Carlton Street, Grimethorpe, faced a charge of fly tipping after she had dumped her rubbish into the gardens of empty properties on Poplar Avenue, Goldthorpe.

When officers investigated, they also found that some of the waste dumped belonged to Tracey Beeley, 46, who said she paid Miss Bunney to take her waste away for her

Miss Bunney pleaded guilty and was fined £100. She was also ordered to pay £196.95 towards the council’s costs and a victim surcharge of £15 - a total of £311.95.

Miss Beeley was charged with a duty of care charge under the Environmental Protection Act. She received a conditional discharge for six months, and was ordered to pay £196.95 towards the council’s costs.

Council spokesman Coun Roy Miller said: “Fly tipping is a serious environmental offence; it makes areas look run down and uncared for, which can deter investment.

"It can be hazardous to health and a fire risk, and can attract more waste to an area. In this case the waste was dumped at empty privately owned properties on the same street.“
