Royston fly-tipper arrested, prosecuted and fined

A Royston woman has been arrested and prosecuted for fly-tipping.

On 15 July 2023, our neighbourhood wardens investigated a report of fly-tipping in an alleyway on Milgate Street in Barnsley and found a quantity of household waste.

Enquiries led to Zoe Milner of Milgate Street being identified as the owner.

Having failed to attend earlier hearings, a warrant of arrest was issued and on 22 April 2024. Milner was arrested and put before the court, at which time she entered a plea of guilty to the offence of fly tipping under Section 33 of the Environmental protection act 1990.

As a result, she was fined and ordered to pay a victim surcharge.

Anna Hartley, Executive Director for Public Health and Communities, said:

“We will not tolerate environmental crime and fly-tipping being a blight on our borough and our communities.

“With the help and support of the wider public, we will identify and prosecute offenders, which can be seen in this case.

“I’d like to thank our neighbourhood wardens, the Safer Communities team and our litigation team for their assistance in this prosecution to send out another strong message against fly-tipping and environmental crime in Barnsley.”
