FLY­TIP­PING ‘in frus­tra­tion’ has cost a man thou­sands of pounds after he ar­rived at a re­cy­cling cen­tre in Slough only to find it was closed.

Ad­heel Hus­sain, 33, of Mi­rador Cres­cent, dumped waste card­board and poly­styrene in a ditch in Bil­let Lane, Iver, in Au­gust last year and at High Wy­combe Mag­is­trates Court on Jan­uary 4 pleaded guilty to fly­tip­ping.

The mag­is­trates fined Hus­sain £1,000 and awarded full clean-up and pros­e­cu­tion costs to be paid to the coun­cil, the sum be­ing an ad­di­tional £1,000.

A vic­tim sur­charge was also levied.

The court was told that on Au­gust 9 Buck­ing­hamshire County Coun­cil en­force­ment of­fi­cer Chris Smith found Hus­sain’s name and ad­dress in the rub­bish and he was in­ter­viewed un­der cau­tion by en­force­ment of­fi­cers.

Hus­sain ad­mit­ted that he dumped the rub­bish out of frus­tra­tion after he ar­rived at the house­hold waste re­cy­cling cen­tre at Chalvey, Slough, and found it had closed.

Waste Part­ner­ship for Buck­ing­hamshire chair­man Sir Beville Stanier said: “Rather than re­turn­ing home with his rub­bish when he found the house­hold waste and re­cy­cling cen­tre closed, this man de­cided to drive into the coun­try­side and dump his waste at the road­side.

“The judge­ment handed down by the magis- trates re­flects the strong feel­ing in the com­mu­nity about this kind of be­hav­iour.”

The case was pros­e­cuted by Buck­ing­hamshire County Coun­cil work­ing on be­half of the Waste Part­ner­ship for Buck­ing­hamshire.
