A fly-tipper was fined £925 after pleading guilty to dumping a plastic bag by a field in Iver which was caught on camera by a motorist’s dash cam.
Wycombe Magistrates’ Court heard on May 18 that 25-year-old Cipran Toma, of The Normans, Slough, dumped a plastic bag on an already large pile of rubbish at the entrance to a field in Trenches Lane, Iver, on January 2.
Toma denied the offence when interviewed at a police station, despite already knowing he had been caught on a passing motorist’s dash-cam after he had seen the driver.
Toma claimed in the interview with Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire investigators he had been refused entry to the Langley Household Waste Recycling Centre.
He said he had transferred plastic bags and other household waste at the side of the road from his van into a friend’s car, so his friend could dispose of the rubbish correctly.
However, Toma pleaded guilty at court and was fined £925 and told to pay £433 in costs.
Closures are planned on the M4 between Langley and the M25 this weekend for smart motorway works.
