Two people have been fined £200 each for flytipping a pile of black bags filled with waste and other unwanted items at Eastbourne United Football Club car park.
Aaron Bradley and Natalie Oglesby, both of Melbourne Road, Eastbourne, are believed to have illegally dumped the mounds of rubbish there on May 7.
Eastbourne Borough Council’s Neighbourhood First team investigated the site at the Oval in Channel View Road and identified the pair responsible.
Councillor Colin Swansborough, Cabinet member for Place Services and Special Projects, said: “We take every case of flytipping seriously and investigate all with a view to issuing a Fixed Penalty Notice as a deterrent, or in some cases, pursuing a prosecution to bring the culprits to justice.
“Discarding rubbish in this way not only creates an eyesore in our beautiful surroundings but is also detrimental to the environment. Please always dispose of litter and unwanted goods responsibly, such as taking them to the waste and recycling centre in St Philip’s Avenue.”
Flytipping can be reported quickly using the Report It smartphone app or on our website.
