A man who was paid to dispose of a company’s waste but then dumped it in St Neots must pay £3,800 in fines and costs.

And he’s also been banned from driving for 28 days.

Steven Jabbar of Robertson Way, Huntingdon, was found guilty of the fly-tipping offence at Peterborough magistrates court on 6 September 2022.


The case was brought by Huntingdonshire District Council who had investigated a reported fly-tip on Priory Hill, St Neots in, July 2021.

“The waste was traced back to a commercial business, who highlighted an individual who was given the responsibility for taking the waste and disposing of it correctly,” said a council spokesperson.

“Instead, he dumped the waste on public land.”

Jabbar was fined £2,000 and made to pay £1,800 costs to the district council.

He was also disqualified from driving for 28 days.

Cllr Stephen Ferguson, executive councillor customer and transactional services, said: “This is yet another successful prosecution which shows that we will not give up chasing fly-tippers and will bring them to justice.

“It costs the council a lot of money to collect and dispose fly-tips.

“This prosecution is another example of our commitment to keeping the district clean and green.”
