A man who dumped a child’s paddling pool and a TV set in a picturesque Neath Valley area has been hit with a large fine.

Craig Richard Lewis also dumped toys, clothes, paint tins, and bags of household waste in a lay-by at Tanyrhiw Road in Resolven.

Swansea Magistrates' Court heard the 35-year-old, of Maescynon, Hirwaun, Aberdare, was tracked down after a complaint was made from a member of the public.

It led to an investigation by Neath Port Talbot Council’s waste enforcement team, who traced the waste to a house in Glynneath which a female tenant had recently vacated.

She explained she paid cash for a man to remove waste from the garden of the house she was leaving. 

Waste enforcement officers then interviewed Lewis, who accepted he was paid £50 to remove “two van loads” of items from the garden.

Fly-tipping explained...

Lewis dumped the first load of waste at Tanyrhiw Road, Resolven in March last year, and further admitted he dumped a second van load on the “Glynneath bank”, an area between Pontwalby and Aberdare.

Mr Lewis, who confirmed he was not a registered waste carrier, pleaded guilty to the unlawful deposit of controlled waste on land during his hearing at Swansea Magistrates' Court where he was fined £480, ordered to pay a £48 victim surcharge and prosecution costs of £623.94. Overall, this is a grand total of £1,151.94.

After the case, Neath Port Talbot Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for streetscene and engineering, councillor Ted Latham, said: “This was an expensive lesson for this defendant who now knows that this authority will not hesitate to prosecute those who seriously damage our environment by fly-tipping.”
