A fly-tipper was pursued and fined by council officials after leaving bank and phone statements showing her home address in a rubbish heap.
The woman was fined £200 after city officials inspected the dumped rubbish.
The eyesore contained a letter from Barclays and a cell phone statement from EE, which were disposed of along with household waste, including an empty plastic bottle of cream soda and a bottle of Baileys.
The fly tip, shown with objects sticking out of a black rubbish bag, was found behind a shop in Gosport, Hampshire.
A law enforcement officer from the council investigated and a 48-year-old woman from the district was tracked through the evidence found in the trash and received the notification.
The fine was reduced to £120 after she paid for the unsightly mess on Brockhurst Road within 10 days of the fine being imposed.
Cllr Peter Chegwyn, leader of Gosport Borough Council, told Metro.co.uk: “Dealing with flytipping is a priority for the council.
“We are investigating all reports and using all our strength to track down the perpetrators. I hope fines like this deter others from spoiling their neighborhoods with trash.”
The council, which employs Streetscene enforcement officers, said reports of fly-tipping are “fully investigated and dealt with appropriately”.
More details of the investigation were released last week after the picture was shared by the local authority on their Facebook page in June.
Last week, Metro.co.uk reported how people living in a newly built property had complained about school children discarding unwanted and broken toys.
They claimed Bell Green in Coventry was plagued by youngsters leaving rubbish in lanes, canals and alleys.
Pictures showed sofas, garbage bags and shopping carts also wreaking havoc in Riley Square and the surrounding area, and residents called on the city council to take action against the chaos.
Another dump truck was spotted by a Department of Defense helicopter while disposing of trash and burned mattresses.
Corey Ross Carr, of Melksham, Wiltshire, had claimed to run a waste disposal service but had previously been prosecuted for breaching environmental and trading standards.
Carr was fined £1,295 in Swindon Magistrates’ Court on June 6 for four environmental offenses and breach of trading standards.
