A company director has been slapped with a fine after mountains of waste, including arm chairs and an oven, were dumped by a busy road in Denham last year.

Director of D&B International Ltd, 35-year-old Artur Andrzej Dlugosz, pleaded guilty to an offence of failing in his and his company’s duty of care at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on February 23.

The court heard that an “enourmous amount” of waste was discovered under the A40 in April last year, which was subsequently traced back to Dlugosz.

In court he admitted he had employed a “man in a van” to dispose of the waste from his building site in South London, however had failed to carry out any background checks and no paperwork was completed.

Dlugosz was fined £750, ordered to pay costs to Bucks County Council of £789 and a victim surcharge of £75 was levied.

D&B International Limited were also fined £250 and ordered to pay £789 towards costs and a victim surcharge of £30 was also levied against the company.  

South Bucks District Council cabinet member for environment, Luisa Sullivan, said : "As a society we have got to cut off the supply of waste to these unscrupulous opportunist waste carriers - and the building sector has its part to play.

“If bona fide waste contractors are used, the chances of waste being dumped illegally is greatly reduced. When people cut corners with waste disposal, they should be prepared to face the consequences."

The case was investigated and prosecuted by Bucks County Council working on behalf of the Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire.
