Havant man who dumped rubbish at nature reserve is fined
A MAN from Havant has been slapped with a £400 fine after being caught dumping his waste at a nature reserve.
The litterbug was tracked down by Havant Borough Council after fly-tipping trash at Broadmarsh in Havant.
Among the rubbish dumped included a child’s play bike, fridge and sacks of waste.
The council’s neighbourhood quality team hunted the man down, who admitted the offence.
He was given a fixed penalty notice.
Natalie Meagher, head neighbourhood support at Havant Borough Council, said: ‘Fly-tipping is a blight on our neighbourhoods and it is hoped that the action taken by our teams sends a clear message that it will not be tolerated.’
The authority has since urged people to dispose of their waste properly, using licensed trade carriers.
People can book an appointment online to use their household waste recycling centre.
