Selby women prosecuted for fly tipping

Chest of draws, single bed base and a mattress fly tipped on Second Common Lane

A successful prosecution at York Magistrates Court as Selby District Council prosecutes a woman who fly tipped a single bed base, mattress and a set of wooden drawers on Second Common Lane, Selby on or around 05 May 2022.

Ms Marinela Memet, 34 from Clog Mill Gardens, Selby appeared at York Magistrates Court on Friday 11 November and pleaded guilty to fly tipping contrary to section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Ms Memet was fined £246, ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £34 and ordered to pay a contribution of the Council’s costs of £250 – a total of £530.

Lead Executive Member for Health and Culture, Councillor Tim Grogan, said. “Dumping your rubbish isn’t tolerated in our district. Another successful prosecution by the Council sends out a clear message that where possible we will take action and seek to prosecute fly tippers.

“Illegal dumping of waste is a blight on the community and a crime, and has a financial impact on the council and therefore the local taxpayer.

“Our Enforcement team’s hard work has led us to this successful prosecution. As a council, we are dedicated to keeping our district clean and safe for everyone.”
