A FLY-TIPPER and business responsible for dumping a kitchen on the roadside in Well near Alford, have been fined a total of £6,000 by magistrates.
East Lindsey District Council took action against Andrew Marshall and Marshalls Removals and Clearance Limited, which he owns, following a tip off from a witness who spotted the waste being dumped on July 10, 2011.
Appearing before a Skegness Magistrate last week, Marshall of Fuller Street, Cleethorpes, pleaded not guilty but was convicted, fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £1,500 costs.
Marshall's Removals and Clearance Limited of Fuller Street, Cleethorpe was also fined £2,000 and told to pay £1,575.42 costs for the offence.
Portfolio holder for street scene at ELDC, Councillor Steve Newton, said: "Flytipping is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in East Lindsey. We will take action against anyone caught fly-tipping and the outcome of this case sends a strong message to those who do flytip that if caught it'll be costly."
