A Burger King in Cricklewood has became the latest firm to be handed a hefty fine following a council led crackdown on fly-tipping programme.
Adil Catering Ltd, trading as Burger King in Cricklewood Broadway, has been named and shamed by Brent Council and issued with a £3000 after being found guilty of three dumping offences by Willesden Magistrates Court.
All three offences took place in January 2014 and the fly-tipped rubbish was found outside the branch.
Neither of the two company directors, Mr Mohammed Adil nor Mrs Irshad Adil attended court.
Cllr Keith Perrin, lead member for the environment said: “We take fly-tipping offences very seriously in Brent. This sort of anti-social behaviour makes our streets look messy and we will work hard to ensure that we keep our streets as clean as possible.
“We have developed a smartphone ‘app’ recently, called the ‘Cleaner Brent’ app which makes it easy for everyone to report litter, fly-tipping and other street problems to us using your smartphone”.
