Fine issued for dumping garden waste

Published: Thursday, 3rd August 2017

Broadland District Council has issued a fixed penalty notice of £200 to someone caught tipping grass cuttings on the Marriott's Way in Aylsham and warns that it doesn't matter if the waste's natural, it's still fly-tipping.

"If you don't want it rotting in your garden then no-one else wants it rotting in the beauty spots where they like to spend their leisure time," said Cllr John Fisher, portfolio holder for Environmental Excellence.

"We want people to be aware that this is not acceptable and we will take action. There are plenty of other options whether it's composting, taking it to the recycling centre or subscribing to a garden waste service."

The council previously issued a notice to someone discovered dumping garden waste on the Blickling Estate.
