Shaun Scrowston was interviewed under caution in Brough on January 13, 2020 where he admitted having collected the waste from a resident and fly-tipping it in the lay-by near Barmby Moor.

Mr Scrowston was offered a fixed penalty notice but having failed to pay, was prosecuted and appeared at Hull Magistrates Court on 25 June 2021.

At court, Mr Scrowston admitted the fly-tipping offence under Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Mr Scrowston was ordered to pay a fine, court costs and a victim surcharge totalling £330.

The court heard that, following a report of fly-tipping, the street cleansing team from East Riding of Yorkshire Council investigated a lay-by near Barmby Moor, on December 6 2019. The team found two black bags which contained fly-tipped general household waste.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is reminding residents they are responsible for disposing of their own waste properly and legally by using their household bins or taking it to their local household waste recycling site.

Paul Tripp, head of streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “There is no excuse for fly-tipping waste on the street, on the highway or in lay-bys in the East Riding. Our hardworking teams investigate all reports of fly-tipping and will take the appropriate actions to prosecute against those people who think it is acceptable to leave waste for others to clear up.”
