These four Hull residents have been prosecuted by Hull City Council for fly-tipping in the city.
James Marynicz and Kelly Pearson of Riston Street were convicted after their waste was found dumped in Boynton Street.
They each received a two-year conditional discharge and were ordered to pay £128 clean-up costs to the local authority under Section 34(2A) Environmental Protection Act 1990.
Romana Pandele of Coltman Street, was prosecuted and ordered to pay £425 after waste was found dumped near Fitzroy Street and St Leonards Road.
And Sarah Lamb of Carlisle Avenue, was also prosecuted for waste dumped in Albemarle Street.
They were prosecuted under Section 110(2)(b) Environment Act 1995.
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. Conviction also means a criminal record.
“Always ask to see a copy of their registered waste carrier’s certificate.”
