Three more offenders prosecuted following crack down on illegal dumping 23.2.10

Three more offenders have been prosecuted by Sutton Council in a crack down on illegal dumping.

Fly tipping

Buxton Clarke, 39, of Therapia Lane, Croydon pleaded guilty to charges brought in relation to flytipping at Sutton magistrates court last week (17 February 2010).

A professional waste collector, Mr Clarke, was fined £450 and ordered to pay £295 costs after his company made a collection from a flat renovation project in Childs Place, Earls Court and the waste was later found dumped at Park Lane, Carshalton.

Mr Clarke denied dumping the rubbish in Park Lane but could not produce any evidence to support his claim.

Also prosecuted this month, Maciej Bialas, of Vicarage Road, Sutton, pleaded guilty to attempting to dispose of two televisions by leaving them at the Bushey Road neighbourhood recycling centre.

Mr Bialas was given an £80 fine and asked to pay £80 costs along with a victim surcharge of £15 by Sutton Magistrates Court on 3 February.

In a similar offence, Hassan Khavari, was found guilty of fly tipping charges at Sutton Magistrates Court on 27 January after he left two computer monitors at Tesco's neighbourhood recycling centre. Mr Khavari was also was given an £80 fine and asked to pay £80 costs along with a victim surcharge of £15.

Cllr Sean Brennan, leader of Sutton Council, said: "This series of prosecutions shows that we will not tolerate the irresponsible behaviour of thoughtless individuals who dump their rubbish.

"Those that choose to carelessly pollute our environment will be caught and prosecuted."

Neighbourhood recycling centres provide facilities for domestic recycling such as paper, plastic bottles, cans, glass and textiles. Larger items and electrical appliances can be taken to the Kimpton Park Way Reuse and Recycle Centre.
