Fly-tipper swatted by council staff

  • Comment

A fly-tipper has been caught out by poor planning: dumping waste under the noses of council staff in their offices.

Samuel Terwase-T-Waya was spotted by an officer unloading an armchair and a metal stand just yards away from Southwark’s environmental enforcement team offices in London in January.

He pleaded guilty to breaching Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court and was fined £200 and ordered to pay £350 towards costs.

Councillor Linda Manchester, executive member for community safety at Southwark LBC, said: “Wherever it takes place in the borough, fly-tipping is an anti-social act which won’t be tolerated.

“This court case gives out a clear message to those who blight our environment that their behaviour isn’t acceptable.”
