Ryan Whittle, 23, of Woodhouse Lane, Springfield, stood before Wigan justices to admit to leaving the rubbish in an alleyway behind Henry Street in Tyldesley, on August 6 2019.
The hearing was told that he left the waste without having an environmental permit, thus putting him in breach of the 1990 Environmental Protection Act.
The penalty, court costs and victim surcharge that he has to pay come to £274.
