Fly-tipper fined for illegal dumping

Another criminal has learned the hard way that fly-tipping in Buckinghamshire won’t be tolerated.

Cezary Subocz of Daintry Close, Harrow in Middlesex, pleaded guilty to an offence of illegal dumping when he appeared at High Wycombe Magistrates Court on Wednesday 5 October 2022.

The court heard that on Friday 28 January 2022, waste which included fence posts, cement, and a bucket, was found dumped at Spring Lane, Flackwell Heath in Buckinghamshire. The Council’s Enforcement Team carries our regular surveillance at the location Fly tipped material due to the area being heavily blighted with fly-tipping. On this occasion, the surveillance camera recorded the suspect’s vehicle arriving in the daytime and the driver was filmed fly-tipping waste onto the ground. 

The vehicle was traced back to Mr Cezary Subocz at a Harrow address. Mr Subocz attended an interview at High Wycombe Police Station, where he admitted to dumping the waste. Mr Subocz explained he was in his car, with the waste, when he noticed it was moving about and said he was afraid it would damage the car. Mr Subocz then explained that he found the lay-by and decided to dump the waste there. He told enforcement officers that he planned to go back and collect the waste but forgot to do so.

Magistrates fined Subocz £461 and ordered him to pay clean up and investigation costs of £1,010. A victim surcharge of £46 was also levied – making a total to pay of £1,517.

Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Climate Change & Environment said: “Once again we have caught another fly-tipper in the act and once again, we have been successful in bringing them to justice in court. This should be a lesson to anyone else who thinks they can fly-tip in Buckinghamshire and get away with it. We have eyes everywhere and if we catch you, we will look to prosecute.”
