Bolton Council has taken four residents to court as part of its continued crack down on flytipping.

Michelle Scrivener admitted to dumping wood on the rear of Crescent Road and was fined £220, £170 costs plus £30 victim surcharge.

David Finch also admitted to dumping concrete flags at the rear of his property on Crescent Road and was fined £40, ordered to pay £185 in costs plus £30 victim surcharge.

Katalin Stojka also pleaded guilty to dumping kids toys and furniture outside her property and was fined £50 plus £420 costs plus £30 victim surcharge.

Christina Larisa Gherasim didn’t attend court, but she was found guilty in her absence of flytipping and fined £220 plus £665 costs and a £30 victim surcharge.

Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, Councillor Nick Peek said:

“We are determined to crack down on fly tipping, which causes all sorts of problems for local residents.

The waste also costs local taxpayers for the council to remove it.

We are pleased that these fines have been handed out and hope they will act as a deterrent to those thinking of leaving their waste in the back streets in future.”
