The borough’s Labour Party have promised to roll out CCTV cars to catch fly-tippers in Brent if they win the council elections.
The pledge, which forms part of their manifesto, will see the introduction of four vehicles dedicated to weeding out illegal dumpers.
The cars will be highly visible and will patrol the borough daily with a focus on known hot spots.
The council currently uses CCTV cars to issue parking tickets.
Cllr Roxanne Mashari, Brent Council’s lead member for environment and neighbourhoods, said: “These four new CCTV cars will be a visible presence across Brent, acting as a deterrent to those who feel that they can use our local streets as their private dumping ground.
“This is what residents have asked for and is now part of Labour’s manifesto promise to Brent residents if we are elected.”
The council elections take place on May 22.
