A MAN who dumped rubbish on a lane in Stafford has been ordered to do unpaid work.
Shaun Machin admitted fly-tipping at Jolpool Lane in Sandon in September last year.
He was given a 12-month community order and will have to complete 80 hours’ unpaid work.
Magistrates in Stafford also ordered him to pay costs of £570 to the ‘People are fed up when others treat the area as a giant dustbin’ borough council.
Machin of Brackenfield Avenue, Bentilee, Stoke on Trent, was caught after council enforcement officers traced the disposal of garden waste and household rubbish back to him.
After the case on April 11 Councillor Frank Finlay, cabinet member for environment and health at Stafford Borough Council, said: “People who care about their community are rightly fed up when others treat the area as a giant dustbin.
“Fly tipping is unsightly and costly.
Anyone who has information of people dumping rubbish illegally can contact us in confidence.”
Anyone with information on fly tipping should contact the council on 01785 619402 or email ehtechsupport @staffordbc.gov.uk
