A man has been prosecuted for fly-tipping from his van

Man with a van caught fly-tipping in Hull

A man has been fined more than £1,000 after he was caught fly-tipping by a CCTV camera.

Graham Spiking, 46, of Feldane, Hull, was prosecuted and ordered to pay £1,230 for waste found dumped in Northolt Close in the city.

CCTV captured Spiking driving a van full of waste before turning into Northolt Close, then shortly leaving the scene with an empty van.

The rubbish was found dumped on a green space in the area.

Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for waste management at Hull City Council, said: “Everyone plays a role in looking after our environment and helping to tackle fly-tipping. By taking a tough stance on enforcement, we can deter any potential offenders.

“If you pay anyone to remove and dispose of your waste who is not a registered waste carrier and this is found fly-tipped in Hull, you may face enforcement action. This could be in the form of a fixed penalty, prosecution and an unlimited fine. Furthermore, conviction means a criminal record.

“Always ask to see a copy of their registered waste carrier’s certificate.”

Check whether someone is a registered waste carrier at the Environment Agency website or by calling 03708 506506.
