In a move to combat environmental violations, Flintshire County Council has imposed a £300 Fixed Penalty Notice on a local resident for the illegal disposal of a mattress in Connah’s Quay.

The action, taken under Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, comes as part of the Council’s ongoing efforts to tackle the issue of fly-tipping in the area.

The investigation was carried out by the Council’s Enforcement Officers following receipt of CCTV footage which captured the event taking place.

This footage proved crucial in enforcing the penalty and underscores the Council’s commitment to using all available resources to uphold environmental laws.

Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Streetscene and the Regional Transport Strategy, Councillor Dave Hughes said:

“This is another excellent result for the Council in an area where household waste items keep being dumped on the street with no regards for the local community or environment.

Fly-tipping is never acceptable and is a criminal activity that can cause serious pollution to the environment, can be a risk to human health and can harm wildlife and farm animals, as well as needlessly diverting essential teams away from the frontline of waste collections.”

“We urge residents to dispose of their waste items correctly by making use of their doorstep recycling and waste collection service or via one of the five household recycling centres (HRCs). Where a resident has a large amount of recycling and waste to dispose of then we recommend utilising the services of an approved skip hire company or waste disposal contractor. Further information can be found on the Council website.”
