Roadside fly tipper

16 days ago

A fly tipper who dumped household and construction waste in a layby has been given a £200 Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN). The householder was caught after his rubbish was found between Carway and Pontneywdd. The items were traced back to a property nearby. The man admitted paying someone to remove some of the waste from his property but didn’t check if they had a waste carrier license. And was unable to provide council enforcement officers with the carrier’s contact details. Householders should record the carrier’s business name, vehicle details, waste carrier registration number and ask for a receipt.

Other FPNs given out during October:

  • A £75 FPN was issued to a Llanelli man for dumping a bag of waste at Dylan recycling facility
  • A £300 FPN was issued to a business owner for a fly tipping incident in Cynheidre. The man failed to produce relevant documentation for the removal and transportation of the business waste within the specified time scale
  • A £300 FPN was issued to a Llanelli woman after rubbished was found dumped in Delta Lakes, Llanelli. The woman admitted paying someone to remove the waste from her address in Trimsaran but didn’t check if they had a waste carrier license. And was unable to provide council enforcement officers with the carrier’s contact details.
