Fly Tipping

A YATE woman was ordered to pay a total of £574 in fines and costs after fly tipping waste in a country lane.
Emma Curness, 29, of Lansdown, admitted dumping rubbish in Gibbs Lane, Dodington, when she appeared at North Avon Magistrates Court.
The court heard she had cleared rubbish from her house into a van and emptied the contents in the lane.
 Curness was fined £240, ordered to pay costs of £310 and told to pay a £24 victim surcharge.
South Gloucestershire Council said unwanted goods, household or garden waste could all be disposed of at no cost at its Sort It! centres, including the site in Yate.
 Meanwhile, anyone who sees illegal fly tipping is urged to report it to the council’s StreetCare helpdesk by emailing streetcare@southglos.gov.uk or phoning 01454 868000.
