Fog led Marlpool man to dump 17 bags of waste

A Marlpool man who fly-tipped 17 bags of waste because it was foggy and he could not see to drive and find a more appropriate place, has been handed a bill of over £3,300 by Derby Magistrates.

Paul Okade, who now lives in Southwark, London, provided the excuse for his actions in dumping the bags of waste at Plough Garage, Mansfield Road, Heanor, on 27 December last year.

The household waste was deposited next to trade waste bins belonging to the garage. Evidence relating to Mr Okade was found in the bags.

Although he pleaded guilty to the offence of fly-tipping he told the court he believed it was an acceptable place to leave the waste. He was fined £2,613.00, ordered to pay costs to the Council of £523.00 and a victim surcharge of £170.00 - a total of £3,306.00 to pay in 28 days.
