Chopping Knife Lane fly-tippers prosecuted

The results of the fly-tipping in Chopping Knife Lane (Photo: Wiltshire Council)The results of the fly-tipping in Chopping Knife Lane (Photo: Wiltshire Council)Bank Holiday Monday will be good for picnicking around our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  But watch out for the results of fly-tipping that can blight the countryside.

 


Wiltshire Council’s clamp-down on fly-tipping has led to the prosecution of Stuart Coventry 33, and Kevin Fidler 66 both of Two Saints Hostel, New Town Road, Newbury.  They pleaded guilty at Reading Magistrates Court (August 16) to fly-tipping rubbish on two separate occasions.

One of the sites they chose was in Chopping Knife Lane, Marlborough.  The other was in Lambourne, near Hungerford.

The court heard how Mr Coventry and Mr Fidler used social media selling sites in Wiltshire and Berkshire to advertise waste clearance services. After collecting the waste they then fly-tipped it, rather than taking it to a commercial tip to dispose of lawfully. 

They were each fined £735 (including costs) and warned by magistrates they faced a jail sentence if they fly-tipped again.

They were tracked down after a lengthy and complex investigation by Wiltshire Council Environmental Enforcement Officers.  Councillor Bridget Wayman is Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport & Waste: “Yet another fly-tipping prosecution which shows that we will not give up chasing fly-tippers and bring them to justice, even when there is limited initial information about the fly-tippers, other than a name." 

"We strongly advise against using ‘man with a van’ rubbish clearance services without fully checking they are licensed to take waste away and noting down their waste carriers license number."

Wiltshire Council advises people not to touch or go through fly-tipped waste themselves, but to report it directly using ‘My Wiltshire’ which can be found at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywiltshire-online-reporting
