A serial fly-tipper who dumped builder’s rubble, gardening waste and mattresses in East Ham has been given a suspended prison sentence.
Peter Carpel from Purfleet, Essex, who has two previous convictions for fly-tipping, admitted he had been paid to take the rubbish but dumped it to maximise his profit.
Thames Magistrates Court heard he left 69 bags of builder’s rubble, 21 bags of gardening waste, three mattresses and a bed-frame in Watson Avenue, in February this year.
Carpel was warned by the magistrate that he was giving him one last chance “to get his act together” hence giving him a 12 weeks prison sentence, suspended for 18 months.
He must also pay a total of £1,165, including £1,000 costs to the council.
