Bramley man prosecuted for fly tipping in Farsley

A Bramley man has been fined £250 for fly-tipping rubbish along a country road in Farsley.

Council officers found a pile of waste dumped on Priesthorpe Road.

Evidence gathered led them to an address in Bramley occupied by Andrew Leefe and his partner.

Leefe was prosecuted for fly tipping under Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and fined £250.

Leeds City Council has pledged to target offenders continuing to fly tip throughout Leeds.

The latest prosecutions also saw action taken against a motor company in Harehills. SMW Motors pleaded guilty to dumping waste on Richardshaw Road and Harehills Road. The company was fined £2,381.

The two cases come just days after Leeds businessman Jerome O’Malley – who operates the Airport Car Boot Sale in Yeadon – was fined almost £11,000 after a fire which sent a plume of dense black smoke across the skies near Leeds Bradford Airport.

Councillor Mohammed Rafique, Leeds City Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Active Lifestyles, said:

“We do not tolerate any form of waste crime and perpetrators will be pursued with legal action.

“Anyone found fly tipping will face prosecution and a fine as it blights our communities and costs the taxpayer through clean-up costs.”
