Fly-tipping at the former RAF Wigsley airfield site has landed a Harby man with a bill for £1,128.
John Rouston of Wigsley Road pleaded guilty at Lincoln Magistrates Court to committing the offence in July 2020 and was fined £480 and ordered to pay £600 in costs and a £48 victim surcharge.
The case was brought by North Kesteven District Council and the authority’s Environmental Protection Team Manager Ayeisha Kirkham said: “The prosecution came after householders were offered a service by a ‘man with a van’ who then dumped the waste at the airfield site.
“I would urge people who need this kind of service to always ask to see a waste carrier’s licence and never pay in cash.”
