Hull residents fined for fly tipping

Hull City Council is releasing more information about successful prosecutions for a number of environmental crimes across the city.

Fly tipping is defined as the ‘illegal deposit of any waste onto land that does not have a licence to accept it’. The council always recommends that residents dispose of or recycle waste properly through legitimate services.

Mark Cornall, Environmental Enforcement Manager, said:

“We want the people of Hull to know that fly-tipping is a crime and is taken seriously. There is no excuse to dispose of waste incorrectly.

“There are a number of services, schemes and waste centres residents can use to ensure waste is properly disposed and our environments are kept clean.”

Fly-tipping prosecution details are as follows:

  • Mr Carl Smith (aged 48 years) of Bedford Street, Hull and Mr Scott Hailstone (aged 28 years) of Barham Avenue, Hull attended Hull Magistrates’ Court and pleaded not guilty, however following a trial at Beverley Magistrates’ Court this resulted in both defendants being found guilty of the below offences.

    Mr Smith was convicted of an offence contrary to section 33(1) Environmental Protection Act 1990 and was ordered to pay fines and costs of £878 and Mr Hailstone was convicted of two offences contrary to section 33(1) Environmental Protection Act 1990 and was ordered to pay fines and costs of £1,010.
