A Cambridge woman has been fined more than £200 for littering after admitting to dumping waste next to a recycling centre because she 'didn't want to contaminate the bins'. Adele Convine, of Larkin Close, was found guilty of littering domestic waste at Cambridge Magistrates Court. The court heard that the waste was found dumped at Larkin Close in October 2021 and that Cambridge City Council, who brought the prosecution, were able to trace it back to Ms Convine. She was ordered to pay a fine of £150, legal costs of £50 and a victim surcharge of £34, totalling £234. Ms Convine was initially offered a fixed penalty notice as an alternative to prosecution but failed to pay the fine.

Executive Environment Councillor Rosy Moore said that she hopes the prosecution sends "a clear message" to Cambridge residents on the council's attitude to littering and fly tipping. She said: "Our residents are sick of the irresponsible few who litter and fly tip in our beautiful city, it is a waste of the council’s scarce resources, which could be better spent on services to residents. I hope this prosecution sends a clear message to residents – please make sure you dispose of waste legally and responsibly."
