Maidstone Borough Council’s Waste Crime Team teamed up with Kent Police Rural Task Force yesterday 24 July, in an operation to help stop illegal fly tipping.

The team seized two vehicles. One van was stopped in a known fly tipping hotspot on Burberry Lane and was found to be carrying waste without a waste carriers licence.

Another van was stopped in the Parkwood area as it had previously been witnessed to be fly tipping on 14 July.

Jamie Duffy, Maidstone Borough Council Waste Crime Manager said:

This was a really successful joint police operation. The fly tipper is going to be put forward to our legal team for prosecution and the illegal waste carrier will be issued with a £300 Fixed Penalty Notice and have to pay to claim his vehicle back.

Maidstone Borough Council’s Waste Crime Team will continue to take a hard-line approach against fly tippers and illegal waste carriers.”
