A garage in Cricklewood that was unable to prove it was disposing of its rubbish legally has been his with a £2,000 fine.

A R Motors in Hassop Road, was convicted of failing to provide evidence of a valid waste transfer note at Willesden Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

All UK businesses must prove where their waste goes and keep records for up to two years, under the Environmental Protection Act of 1990.

Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Brent Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “Without these official documents, there is nothing to prove that a business didn’t intend to or actually just dump their rubbish on the street.

“We expect everyone to dispose of their waste properly and responsibly, and will take all necessary measures to investigate and prosecute those who flout the rules.”
