A FORMER businessman has been told to do unpaid work for the community after he was caught fly tipping in Suffolk.

Jake Klein who ran Glorious Home Improvements and Glorious Windows pleaded guilty to two counts of illegally dumping a van load of rubbish at a site in Ashby, in December 2006, and at Aldeby, in March 2007.

Giles Atkinson, prosecuting at Ipswich Crown Court yesterday, said the 22-year-old accepted that he controlled the use of the transit vehicles which were used for the fly tipping.

Mr Atkinson added that Klein had told an employee he was to find somewhere to tip the waste or he would lose his job.

The waste included window frames and PVC which was traced back to Klein. The court heard that Klein had a similar previous conviction for illegally disposing waste in November 2006. Mr Atkinson said on that occasion he was fined £1,000 and told to pay £1,000 costs.

The court heard that Klein lived with his partner and their 11-month-old baby at Cox's Close, in Beccles. He had been working as a scaffolder since his business dissolved and is facing bankruptcy later this month.

Lindsay Cox, mitigating, said his client was working full time but would be available to do unpaid work.

Judge David Goodin said: “You left builders muck cluttering up country lanes, leaving it for other people to clear up at some cost.”

Klein was told to do 150 hours unpaid work and pay £250 towards the prosecution costs which were estimated to exceed £9,000.
