Matthew Hockey, of no fixed abode, was charged with illegally dumping waste, failing to produce authority to transport waste, transporting waste without a licence and failing to produce waste transfer notes. The 28-year-old admitted the offences at Huntingdon Magistrates Court on Thursday (May 8). The court heard that on August 1 last year, Hockey had been paid to take away the rubbish from a property in Gladstone Street, Peterborough, and that it was later found in the Gated Road, Elton. As well as a 12-month community order, including the 160 hours of unpaid work, he was told to pay £250 costs and a £60 victim surcharge. HDCs head of operations, Eric Kendall, said: Fly-tipping is unsightly, has a detrimental impact on the environment and is very costly to remove. This council takes fly-tipping very seriously, and will, wherever possible, instigate legal action against anyone who participates in such activities.
