A landscaping business has been fined £180 after being unable to account for waste dumped in Aylsham.
The rubbish was traced back to the firm through a customer's details which were found amongst the debris in Spratts Green.
Broadland District Council said the company was unable to provide paperwork showing who collected the waste, and was initially fined £300. But the figure was reduced to £180 after the company agreed to pay it early.
John Fisher, Broadland's portfolio holder for environmental excellence, said: 'A business disposing of waste has to have a waste carrier's licence and keep the receipt they get from the landfill site for at least two years.
'If you employ another business or someone else to dispose of waste for your business then you have to get a Waste Transfer Note from them and be ready to show it.'
