Fly tipping will cost you, don’t do it

A man has been fined for fly tipping in Barton and Tredworth after Gloucester City Council took him to Cheltenham Magistrates Court. 

Mr Chana of Blenheim Road Gloucester, appeared before magistrates earlier this month, and pleaded guilty to fly tipping.   

The offence took place in July 2015 and the waste consisted of several black bags of household rubbish which Mr Chana had transported from his property and dumped in the bin area at Vauxhall Terrace.

Mr Chana was fined £100.00, ordered to pay costs of £793.84 and a victim surcharge of £20.00.

Cllr Jennie Dallimore, cabinet member for communities and neighbourhoods, said: “I am very disappointed that people continue to try and commit these sort of crimes.

“Fly tipping is not a victimless crime and we will always seek to prosecute those who blight this city with their inconsiderate actions. 

“Let this be a warning to anyone else who thinks that they can fly tip, it won’t be tolerated.”

To report fly tipping you can fill in an online form available from http://www.gloucester.gov.uk/resident/bins-and-recycling/Pages/fly-tipping.aspx  or by calling 01452 396 396.

Anyone looking for help with their help managing household waste can contact the city council by emailing heretohelp@gloucester.gov.uk or calling 01452 396396.

Still going on. Absolutely dreadfull in albany street area and around St James farm

 And dont get me started on St James park or Tredworth High Street. The amount of garbage floating around from lazy people who just cant be bothered is making the area an absolute crud hole.


Who ever the councillor is should be ashamed
