A cup of coffee costs £400 for the Telford tipper

Flytipper fine issues

Telford & Wrekin Council did not name the man, but say he was filmed by CCTV and the company – a coffee company in Trench – provided the crucial evidence.

The council said its law enforcement team responded to the business manager’s request for support and its footage showed a driver arriving and unloading unauthorized items in the car park.

He then bought a coffee and fled.

It turned out to be the most expensive cafe as the Telford & Wrekin Council enforcement team were able to issue a fixed £400 fine notice.

The council said businesses in the borough are responsible for removing fly tips from their land.

He reiterated his commitment to working with them and residents through his dedicated fly dump project called “Telford & Wrekin Watch”.

The project has a dedicated hotline for reporting information that could result in prosecution, directly to the team of law enforcement officers.

Flight tips should always be reported through the MyTelford app and will not be removed if reported on this number.

Deputy leader of the council, Councilor Richard Overton, cabinet member for housing, law enforcement and transport, said: ‘It’s not just public land that we’re protecting from dumpsters, but we’re also work with the business community and are happy to issue a fine where there is enough. proof.

“Our neighborhood law enforcement team worked closely with the store manager to investigate and follow up on the evidence.

“My thanks to the team for pursuing the fine, the company for working with us, and the tipper for acknowledging the issue and prompt payment.

“Our legal team is working closely with our officers to ensure that all fines are fair and just and I am absolutely certain that in this case justice has been served.”

Customers are responsible for managing and disposing of their waste properly on business premises and in public areas.

Businesses experiencing on-the-fly relief issues can call 01952 388 800 and leave a message or visit Telford.gov.uk/Watch for existing appeals and convictions.
