Five fly-tippers hit by new on-the-spot fines

Five fly-tippers in the St Albans District have been issued with Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) since the new “on-the-spot” fines were introduced.

One offender was caught after dumping a bicycle, wash basket and a bag of discarded fabrics in the Ashley ward of St Albans.

Two of the other offences were carried out in the Clarence ward and one each in London Colney and Marshalswick North. 

FPNs for fly-tipping were introduced by the Conservative-led St Albans City and District Council in February following an investigation into their likely effectiveness.
