Woman fly-tipper must pay £130


A WOMAN has been fined £100 with a £30 victim surcharge after being convicted of fly-tipping at Warrington.
Lauraine Walker, 56, of Poplars Avenue, Orford, pleaded not guilty when she appeared at Warrington Combined Courts but was convicted due to her refusing to assist the council into its enquiries into the dumping of 15 bags of household waste at Orford Youth Base in February.
The court was told that evidence found in the refuse bags pointed towards Walker’s address on Poplars Avenue.
Council officers wrote to her on several occasions and served a notice asking her to make contact with the authority to help them with their enquiries.
After the hearing, the council’s cabinet member for environment and public protection, Cllr Judith Guthrie said: “We are glad this has resulted in another successful conviction.
“It’s unacceptable to think that fly-tipping or disposing of waste illegally is ‘someone else’s problem’. We all have a duty to dispose of our waste correctly and I would urge all residents to be vigilant, report any instances of fly-tipping and assist in our enquiries, so that we can continue our crackdown.”
