Removal man Michael Carr prosecuted for fly-tipping in New Mill
A council chief has welcomed the successful prosecution of a removal man who dumped rubbish on land in New Mill.
Kirklees Council’s Cabinet member for enforcement, Clr Naheed Mather, praised council officers for bringing the case to court.
The council said Michael Carr, of Hanson Lane, Lockwood, was fined £500 and ordered to pay £545 costs and a £50 victim surcharge after he was convicted at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court in Huddersfield last month.
In a statement the council said Carr was prosecuted for allowing waste to be taken away by a third party and then fly-tipped.
