Complete Rubbish? Landlord’s four figure waste bill

A council has prosecuted a landlord who failed to ensure waste from his property was properly disposed of.

Mohammed Hussain from Leeds pleaded guilty at York Magistrates Court to failing to ensure household waste from his property was transferred to an authorised person, under Section 34 (2A) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Hussain paid two individuals to dispose of rubbish from his property, which was then dumped on to a farmer’s lane and field in South Milford. 

Selby council investigated and found evidence linking the waste to Hussain.

 

 

He was fined £500, ordered to pay a surcharge of £30, £240 to reimburse the farmer who had to pay for the removal of the waste from his property and costs of £412.50 – a total of £1,182.50.

    He probably thought his outrageously high council tax and / or business rates paid for this when in reality it's used to pay gold plated public sector pensions
