McCaul was initially issued with a £400 Fixed Penalty Notice but when he refused to pay up, Brent Council filed a case at Willesden Magistrates Court.
On May 30th he was found guilty and fined £2,085.
Brent Council's environment chief Cllr Krupa Sheth said: "We will not tolerate illegal rubbish dumping in Brent and this latest victory shows that where we can pursue prosecution we will.
Everyone has a legal duty to ensure that their waste is disposed of correctly - this includes checking that the people who take away large items for a fee are registered providers."
