A man who dumped two tonnes of industrial rubbish on a Reigate roadside has been fined more than £1,000.

Daniel Loveridge of Howsman Road, Barnes, pleaded guilty to dumping the rubbish on Trumpets Hill Road between Betchworth and Reigate on February 21 2018.

He has now been sentenced to 120 hours unpaid work and ordered to pay a £1150 fine to Reigate Banstead Borough Council (RBBC).

Councillor James Durrant, executive member for community safety on RBBC, said: “This huge amount of refuse was carelessly dumped on the side of the carriageway.

“It was not only bad for the environment but posed an enormous risk to road users and also required a large clean-up operation from the council.

“We take fly tipping extremely seriously and would like to remind residents to check where their refuse is going when using a third party company to dispose of any household waste.

“Our advice is to ask to see their waste carriers licence.”

RBBC say that the £1150 fine has been used to cover the cost of clearing up and disposing of the rubbish.

The case was heard December 17 2018 at Guildford Magistrates court. Loveridge was sentenced on January 7 2019.
