Fly-tipped waste in Astwith traced back to Edwinstowe

We are continuing to clamp-down on environmental crime as we have issued another £200 fixed penalty notice (FPN) for fly-tipping in Astwith.

Fly-tipped waste was found on Astwith Lane in June containing evidence which we investigated and traced back to its original address in Edwinstowe. Fly-tipped waste at the entrance to a field gate in Astwith

The householder then paid a £200 fixed penalty notice for failing in their household duty of care to ensure they took reasonable checks that the person they passed the waste to, was a licenced waste carrier.

Cabinet Member for the Environment, Councillor Anne Clarke said, “It’s an absolute disgrace. And to add insult to injury, the waste was also dumped right under one of our posters that clearly says fly-tipping is a crime.

“A few mindless and inconsiderate people are spoiling the area for the rest of us. I mean, why do they do it? It not only looks unsightly and spoils the countryside, but also attracts vermin and disease.

“We have been working very hard over the past couple of years to reduce fly tipping and catch those who continue to flout the law and we will continue with our tough stance against those who continue to use our district as a dumping ground.”

Residents can check if a collector is licenced using the public register on the Environment Agency website (opens in a new window).

We offer a bulky waste collection service, which can be booked by telephone on 01246 242424 or via our Self Service Portal (opens in a new window)
