Weekend Courier - - Opinion -

A ROCK­ING­HAM man who dumped a TV, tyres and con­crete in State for­est in Jand­abup was fined in Joon­dalup Mag­is­trates Court ear­lier this month.

Lloyd Ga­bor Nagy (32) was fined $1000 and or­dered to pay $742.50 in costs af­ter he pleaded guilty to dump­ing a trailer load of house­hold junk about 12.30pm on May 26 near West­brook Road.

Covert cam­eras caught the res­i­dent dump­ing the waste, which in­cluded build­ing ma­te­ri­als and soil.

Nagy told Mag­is­trate Gre­gory Benn it hap­pened at a “dark time” in his life and he “had a bad run”.

Depart­ment of Wa­ter and En­vi­ron­men­tal Reg­u­la­tion se­nior man­ager waste op­er­a­tions Matt Warnock said the fine should act as a warn­ing to would-be dumpers.

“Il­le­gal dump­ing can im­pact peo­ple’s health and the en­vi­ron­ment and im­pose sig­nif­i­cant clean-up costs,” he said.
