Thanet Fly Tippers in court

From the TDC website

A Margate resident has been prosecuted this week (17 August 2015) at Thanet Magistrates Court for Fly-tipping.
Luke Jennings, 19, of St. Peter’s Road, Margate was convicted for the illegal depositing of waste at the Loop site, Manston.
Mr Jennings was given a community order for a period of 12 month during which he must undertake 60 hours of community service.
The offender must also pay £720 in costs and a £60 victim surcharge.
This latest conviction comes as Thanet Council ramps up its crack down on those responsible for fly-tipping and littering across the area.
Last week a Ramsgate resident was prosecuted at Canterbury Magistrates Court for fly-tipping at two rural locations in Thanet and the transportation of waste while not being a registered carrier.
Mr Conlin, 38, of Whitehall Rd, Ramsgate received a guilty verdict on both charges and was sentenced by the magistrate to 150 hours of community service, to be completed within in a period of 12 months.
As well as the community order, the convicted flytipper has been ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge and £1,000 in costs.
Cllr Suzanne Brimm, Cabinet Member for Operational Services, said “Thanet is a flourishing tourist destination and the council is working hard on initiatives to improve our beautiful Isle. Fly-tipping is a serious matter that we are focused in on and we will continue to prosecute offenders to the fullest extent of the law. Anyone who witnesses fly tipping should contact the council immediately on 01843 577000.”
Incidents of fly tipping can also be reported by email at Streetscene.Enforcement@thanet.gov.uk or via the MyThanet app.
