Following the case where a woman was fined for dumping 40 bags of rubbish, Thanet Council said it would not tolerate fly-tipping.
Cllr Michelle Fenner, Cabinet Member for business, Corporate and Regulatory Services said: “We will take action against those who do so.
"Our enforcement officers work hard to catch those who litter our towns and villages, so it is encouraging to see outcomes like this.
“We should take pride in our environment, and it is sad that people who carry out such offences do so at the risk of spoiling others.
"If anyone sees any fly-tipping take place, I urge them to contact the council immediately.”
