A former Rebels bikie has been fined after admitting allowing four piles of construction waste to be dumped in Gnangara bushland. Former Orelia man Jamie Robert Collins, 29, faced Rockingham Magistrates Court on Friday and pleaded guilty to one count of failing to comply with directions. State prosecutor Gracie Beck from the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation told the court that on July 26, 2021 between 1pm and 3.30pm a Ford trailer tip truck was seen entering a construction site along Warburton Road and captured by surveillance cameras in the area. On the same day between 5.17pm and 8pm the vehicle was witnessed along Gnangara Road disposing of construction waste. On July 27, 2021, department inspectors attended the site, where they found City of Wanneroo employees cleaning up the waste. Inspectors located four piles of construction waste. Collins, who now lives in Byford, had been issued a direction to answer questions in relations to the allegations of dumping at his last known address in Orelia and had been given until January 28, 2022 to comply before further action would be taken. “Your honour, dumping impacts the environment and amenity of Western Australia and prosecutions of dumping offences from motor vehicles presents particular difficulties for regulators particularly with identifying alleged offenders,” Ms Beck said. “The accused was given adequate opportunity to provide information, the direction to answer questions was delivered directly to his address and provided a clear time frame in which to respond. “Any sentence imposed should reflect the seriousness of the offence and provide the need for personal and general deterrence.” Collins told the court that the paperwork had been sent to an old address, but that he took accountability over the waste being improperly disposed of by someone within his company. “I never got any paperwork, but at the same time I owned the company that the truck was running. I take responsibility,” he said. Collins was fined $1,000 and ordered to pay court costs of $788.30.
