A man has been ordered to pay more than £2,000 for illegally transporting a friend’s rubbish as a ‘favor’.

Shane Jestin-Cull was caught transporting garden waste, timber and fencing in a dump truck at Orbital Business Park in Ashford.

Suspicious officers had arrested him on February 2 and alerted the Ashford Borough Council’s Environmental Crime Team, which had sent staff to the scene.

Jestin Cull presented officials with a waste transfer note, along with an Environment Agency waste hauler license in another man’s name.

He claimed he was doing the permit holder a favour.

Jestin-Cull received a Section 5 notice, requiring him to produce his or his employer’s authorization to transport waste. He then said he was in the process of applying for the appropriate license.

He was ordered to appear before Folkestone magistrates on July 18, but did not appear in court.

A council attorney requested that the case be heard in his absence, and after reviewing the prosecution’s evidence, the district judge found Jestin-Cull guilty of two misdemeanors of trash.

He was fined a total of £1,440 and ordered to pay counsel costs of £839 and a victim fine surcharge of £144.

He had 28 days to pay.
