Arkadiusz Aulejtner of Hillside, Fochriw was taken to court as a result of giving commercial waste to a person who subsequently illegally deposited it at Dyffryn Industrial Estate in Ystrad Mynach.

He appeared at Newport Magistrates Court on Friday 13 June. He pleaded guilty to a breach of duty of care of controlled waste contrary to the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Aulejtner was fined £450, ordered to pay costs of £448.93 and a victim surcharge of £45.

Cllr David Poole, Cabinet Member for Community and Leisure Services said, “All residents and businesses across Caerphilly county borough have a legal responsibility to ensure that household and commercial waste is disposed of in a legal and proper manner”.

He continued, “This case is important as it demonstrates the council’s tough stance on tackling fly tipping. I also hope it will encourage householders and business owners to ensure that they check their household or commercial waste is being removed by a licensed carrier, who will go on to dispose of it properly.
