10/07/20: Dumped beer cans and nappy leads to £120 fine

Dumped Beer Cans A group of residents who left beer cans, bottles and a used nappy on a communal green space in Dereham have been issued two fixed penalty notices for littering by Breckland Council.

The group, who were socialising in June on a green on Girling Road, left a significant amount of litter, which was later found by the council's grass-cutting contractor.

After an investigation by the Breckland Council Enforcement Team, the group members were identified and admitted to leaving the waste. The group was fined £120, rising to £160 if not paid within 28 days.

Cllr Gordon Bambridge, Breckland Council's Executive Member for Environmental Services and Public Protection, commented: "It is simply not acceptable to leave your litter behind you for other members of the community to find and clean up. I hope this latest investigation and fine highlights that we will take action to protect the environment for the good of the wider communities of Breckland."
