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.
