Hi Jo, sorry to bother you again , i have been told can face a sentence for fly tipping offence is this possible in this case, first offence if prosecuted and no previous convictions, it was cardboard and 2 bags of rubbish containing bottlesRichard

Yes, you can but it won't happen.

This will be a fine only.

Ok thanks for reply, i know hard to judge but do you know the amount the fine could be upto?Many thanks

I cannot imagine it will be huge. It is not a huge instance.

It is difficult to judge environmental crime as it depends on means.
