Brent Council have vowed to name and shame fly-tippers caught dumping in the borough following two successful prosecution.
DC Impex Ltd, which trades as Home Choice in High Street , Harlesden, were hauled before the courts after they dumped 10 black bags full of rubbish on a footpath near Harlesden Plaza.
They were traced through receipts found in the bags.
They admitted one charge of fly-tipping in June 2013 and were fined £100, ordered to pay costs and compensation for clearing the rubbish of £200 and a victim surcharge of £20 to Brent Council.
Krasen Petkov, of Rugby Avenue, Wembley, admitted dumping a pile of wood outside a small recycling site in Mulgrave Road, Dollis Hill, in April last year.
He was spotted by an enforcement officer who noted the registration number of his silver Renault Espace and traced him through the DVLA.
He was fined £100, ordered to pay costs of £150 and pay a victim surcharge £20.
Both cases were heard at Willesden Magistrates’ Court last week.
Cllr Roxanne Mashari, Brent Council’s member for environment and neighbourhoods, said “Residents are sick of waste blighting the borough’s streets and rightly expect us to crack down.
“That’s why I’m warning anyone who fly-tips in the street what the consequences could be. It won’t stop with legal action because we will also name and shame offenders as a deterrent to others who may try it.
“With the Council’s free bulky item collection service available to all residents there really is no excuse to fly-tip.”
