Knowsley Council has successfully prosecuted an offender for fly tipping.
Deborah Maher, from Jarrett Road, Kirkby, was charged with fly tipping under s33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. She pleaded guilty to dumping cardboard boxes and bin bags on open space land on the corner of Changford Road and Jarrett Road, Northwood, (pictured). She was fined £400, plus costs of £606.55, and a victim surcharge of £40.
Included in the fly tipping pile were letters with details of the defendant’s name and address which enabled the council to pursue the prosecution.
Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhoods, Cllr Shelley Powell said: “Fly tipping is a blight on our neighbourhoods and will not be tolerated. This latest successful prosecution sends out a clear message that we will continue to pursue those responsible for fly tipping and take the strongest possible action against them.”
Incidents of fly-tipping can be reported online via the Knowsley Council website.
