Sub heading

Three residents from Luton have incurred fines and costs over £2,200 following successful prosecutions for breaching a Community Protection Notice (CPN) in relation to waste disposal.

On 9 July 2019, Mrs Mabara Pulca of Leagrave Road, Luton incurred a fine totalling £734 for the offence failing to comply with a CPN to remove waste from her front garden. This included the fine of £440, costs of £250 and a Surcharge of £44. The CPN was served as a result of complaints being made about Mrs Pulca storing a sofa, chair and general waste in the front garden in a unsightly manner.

On 3 July 2018, Mr Kyrstian Rysakowski of Farm Green, Luton incurred a fine totalling £734, which included the fine of £440, costs of £250 and a Surcharge of £44. Mr Rysakowski was issued with the CPN to remove tree cuttings and other waste from the rearside alley of 31-35 Grove Road, Luton, and to cease storing waste in an unsightly manner in the rearside alley. Mr Rysakowski does not live at the property and failed to comply.

On 3 July 2018, Miss Malwina Dyszko of Ivy Road, Luton incurred a fine totalling £734, which included the fine of £440, costs of £250 and a Surcharge of £44, for the offence failing to comply with a CPN to remove waste from his garden.

All three failed to attend or contact the court and in each case a 28 day Collection Order was made.

Councillor Aslam Khan, Portfolio Holder for Place and Infrastructure, said: “These prosecutions are intended to send a very strong message that we will always take robust enforcement action in cases like these. Community Protection Notices are there to protect the public and not to be ignored.”

“We have two excellent household waste recycling centres and a bulky waste collection service that residents can use if they have excess rubbish to get rid of, so there is simply no excuse for anybody leave waste in this manner.”

Residents also have the option of using an independent waste carrier to take bulky items away, they can check they are registered on the Environment Agency website​.

It is the responsibility of the householder to always choose someone who’s registered and make sure their waste is disposed of properly. Failure to do so could result in prosecution and a fine.
