The cleanliness of the Borough is continuing to be a top priority for Doncaster Council, after two more litter-droppers were successfully prosecuted.
Michelle Lawton, of Chelmsford Drive, Wheatley, was found guilty of littering in the town centre and was fined £100 plus £82.50 in costs.
In another case, Matthew Wilson, of Carr Hill Drive, Balby, was found guilty of depositing and leaving litter and he was fined £150 plus £80 in costs.
Lawton and Wilson both failed to appear at Doncaster Magistrates Court and their cases were proved in their absence.
Martin Winter, Mayor of Doncaster said: ‘I’m dedicated to abolishing the problem of litter within Doncaster and urge everyone to continue to make it a cleaner, greener place. These latest prosecutions prove once again that the Council will not tolerate any environmental crime and heavy fines will be imposed.
‘Over £3million is spent every year by the Council, ensuring the local environment is clean and pleasant. This money could go towards enhancing other services; therefore we need to persevere in cracking down on anyone found to be offending’.
