A bakery in Willesden has become the latest business to be named and shamed as a fly-tipper by Brent Council.

Afghan Bakery and Catering, trading as Afghan Bakery in Church Road, has been ordered to pay a total of £720 after it admitted four offences after it dumped rubbish in the street.

The company was fined £100 for each offence and was ordered to pay costs of £300 and a victim’s surcharge of £20 at Willesden Magistrates’ Court.

Cllr Roxanne Mashari, Brent Council’s lead member for environment and neighbourhoods, said: “Residents are sick of fly-tippers blighting the borough’s streets and rightly expect us to crack down. That’s why I’m warning anyone who fly-tips 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.

“Brent Council is determined to clean up the borough’s streets and have our town centres as clean as possible.”

Warrants of arrest have been issued to three people who failed to show up in court for individual cases.

Two were to be prosecuted under section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 accused of failing in their duty of care to ensure waste is not fly-tipped, and one was to be prosecuted under section 33 of the same Act accused of fly-tipping.
