A Llanelli man has been prosecuted for dumping bags of refuse outside his home.
Shaun William Owen pleaded guilty at Llanelli Magistrates Court to an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
The court was told that Mr Owen was issued with a £75 fixed penalty notice in March 2016 after admitting placing bags of rubbish outside his and his partner’s then home in Ropewalk Road, Llanelli, shortly before they moved out. He said the landlord was supposed to remove them.
Thirty two-year-old Mr Owen, now of Havelock Street, Llanelli, was prosecuted after he failed to pay the fixed penalty.
He was fined £184 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £30 and costs of £200.
