"The fine and costs set out by the court sends out a warning to those thinking of disposing of waste in this manner.
"It is unacceptable and blights the communities we live in."
Magistrates ordered Kay to pay the £250 fine and the council's costs of £231.90.
He offered to clear the £481.90 total at the rate of £15 per week, with his first payment to be made within 14 days.
