Man ordered to pay £860 after admitting fly-tipping on land outside Faringdon

A man has been ordered to pay £860 after admitting fly-tipping on land outside Faringdon.

Jason Turley, aged 40, of no fixed abode, appeared at Oxford Magistrates' Court on Monday 20 January and pleaded guilty to the charge of unauthorised deposit of waste under section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act.

Magistrates heard that on Thursday 10 May 2018, Vale of White Horse District Council, received a report of a large amount of fly-tipped waste on land near Hollow Road, on the B4019 between Badbury Hill and Steeds Farm, outside Faringdon.

Officers investigated and recovered evidence relating to an address in Watchfield. Following further investigation, it transpired the waste had been fly-tipped by Mr Turley.

At the hearing magistrates heard that in mitigation Mr Turley was remorseful for his actions and that he had never done anything like that before, or since. Mr Turley was ordered to pay a fine of £130, £700 towards prosecution costs and a £30 victim surcharge.

Cllr Jenny Hannaby, Cabinet Member for Housing and Environment at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: "There are no excuses for fly-tipping. It is illegal and we will investigate and prosecute those who are found to have carried it out. Unwanted household waste can be taken to household recycling centres across our districts and anyone with any queries about what to do with unwanted items can easily access information by contacting us or looking at our website."
