Justice has been served on five fly-tippers who were caught dumping their waste around St Albans.
The people admitted their offence and paid on-the-spot fixed penalty notices (FPNs) of £300 to St Albans council.
One offender was collared after abandoning a bicycle, wash basket, and a bag of discarded fabrics in Ashley.
Fines were also issued for offences in Clarence, London Colney, and Marshalswick.
St Albans council’s portfolio holder for the environment, Daniel Chichester-Miles, said: “Fly-tipping has been a growing problem nationwide and we have been determined to clamp down on it in the district.
“I am delighted FPNs have had an immediate impact and perhaps contributed to the reduction in the number of fly-tips.
“Flytipping is a blight on the district and a significant cost to the council for clearing up.
