Fly-tipper ordered to pay £515 after rubbish found dumped

Press release   •   Jul 30, 2014 14:21 BST

A Rochdale woman has been given a 12-month conditional discharge and been ordered to pay £515 after pleading guilty at Bury and Rochdale Magistrates' Court after failing to dispose of her waste correctly.

Natalie Duffy, 37, of Farm Walk, Rochdale, appeared before the court on 15 July after a warrant was executed after she failed to appear previously.

She was charged with failing to take all reasonable steps on the transfer of her waste, commonly known  as an occupier’s duty of care, but the court accepted her account that she had paid someone to move some of the waste from her yard and that she did not realise that such a person must be authorised. The waste was found flytipped on land off Albert Royds Street in Rochdale.

She was given a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £500 towards costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
