Serial fly-tippers jailed and ordered to repay £240,000

Two men have been convicted of dumping hundreds of tonnes of waste at sites across east London, Hertfordshire and Essex, receiving year-long prison sentences and ordered to pay back a six-figure sum from the proceeds of their crimes.

The men had been spotted on a number of occasions illegally dumping waste between 2012 and 2014 in what the court heard was a highly organised operation. The men were twice spotted dumping aggregate from an articulated lorry at building sites in Essex and Barking, east London.

Environment Agency (EA) officers also found evidence the men had rented a site from National Rail at Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, to store waste wrapped in bales of black plastic, and had used a former landfill site in Rainham, Essex, to dump mixed waste on multiple occasions.
