A man has been fined £300 for flytipping after council workers were able to look through the waste and identify him.
The rubbish was found in Kilverstone Road, Thetford, and an investigation was launched on August 13.
After sorting the waste the man was tracked down.
If the fine is unpaid in 10 days then it will increase to £400.
A Breckland Council spokesman said: "The waste could have simply been put in the bin or left at the local recycling centre for free.

"One hundred per cent of what you see in these pictures could of been disposed of correctly, sadly the man thought it was okay to flytip.
"Due to his actions, he is now not only facing a significant fine, but as a result of the shame of being caught he has volunteered to do a community litter pick to atone for his actions."
