A driver has been ordered to pay over £2,500 for fly-tipping in Aylesbury. 

Jason Fabian Hawkins, of Brickhill Way, Calvert Green, was found guilty in his absence at trial at High Wycombe Magistrates Court on 26th April.

In October last year officers from the Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire attended a fly-tipping incident at North Farm Lane, Kingswood, off the A41.

The investigation:

  • They found 20 dumped boxes which they traced to a company at Long Crendon. 
  • The firm assisted the investigation and provided details for one of their drivers whose delivery round had not been completed.
  • When interviewed at a police station, Mr Hawkins denied dumping the boxes.  However, further investigation of the circumstances eliminated all other sources of the waste and the case proceeded against him.

Mr Hawkins was fined £1,200 and ordered prosecution costs to be paid in the sum of £1,357.80, a victim surcharge of £120 was also levied  –  making a total to pay of £2,677.80.

Aylesbury Vale District Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste Sir Beville Stanier, speaking on behalf of the Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire, said:

"Despite sustained denials, the court held this man responsible for dumping the goods he was meant to deliver.

"In the end, it was necessary to arrest him to bring him before the court for sentencing - the Waste Partnership is grateful for the support shown by the court and by the police in this prosecution."

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

The Partnership's Illegal Dumping Costs campaign, launched in November 2003 to combat illegal dumping and waste management offences in Buckinghamshire, has resulted in over 660 convictions and a significant saving to the Buckinghamshire taxpayer principally through reducing removal and disposal costs.
