Hounslow skip company New Bharat Skips - owned by the son of a Labour councillor - was one of three rogue firms to be hauled before court and ordered to pay out more than £2,000 for illegally leaving their skips on the road.
New Bharat Skips, Top Skips and Punjab Skips all pleaded guilty to depositing a skip on the public highway without permission, at Ealing Magistrates' Court earlier this month.
New Bharat Skips, based in Laburnum Grove, Hounslow, was fined £350 and ordered to pay £536 costs for leaving a skip without permission outside a property in Bournemead Close, Northolt.
The court heard on January 15 that the company is due to cease trading at the end of the month due to financial difficulties.
Meanwhile Jaswinder Dhaliwal of Top Skips, based in Waye Avenue, Cranford, was fined £350 and ordered to pay costs of £300 for leaving a builder's skip out-side a greengrocer shop in Oldfield Lane North, Greenford.
And Punjab Skips, of Western Road, Southall, was fined £500 and ordered to pay £250 costs for leaving a skip outside a property in Midhurst Road, West Ealing, in August without permission.
The prosecutions followed investigations by Ealing Council's envirocrime prevention team.
The Chronicle reported in 2007 how Tajinder Singh Dhaliwal, whose father is Hounslow Heath ward councillor Surjit Dhaliwal, was ordered to pay £50,000 after New Bharat Skips illegally dumped 1,000 tons of building waste.
Between 2004 and 2006 his company dumped huge quantities of rubbish, including acid batteries and chemical drums, near Heston Motorway Services.
