Gabriel Paul Ivanyi, of Adelaide suburb Devon Park, faced charges for repeatedly dumping building and construction waste over a two-year period on sites owned by SA Water, the Australian Rail Track Corporation and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.

Mr Ivanyi is the sole director of Adelaide Earth Removal, which offers services on site clean-up, site preparation, rubbish removal, and demolition and concrete removal.

He was previously found guilty in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court in May 2012 for illegally dumping waste in December 2011. However, despite this conviction, he was captured by covert CCTV cameras illegally dumping building construction waste between December 2012 and May 2013.
