A national pizza chain has been ordered to pay a £1,600 fine for illegally dumping rubbish on the streets in Cricklewood.
Waste enforcement manager Dennis Lewis said: “It’s not a nice job crawling through the contents of bags of abandoned rubbish working out where they came from, but that’s what we’ll do to identify these people and make them pay the price of their antisocial behaviour.”
The pizza chain were found guilty on Tuesday (January 5) under Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act.
Cabinet member for the environment Eleanor Southwood said: “Residents and shopkeepers alike all suffer from illegally dumped rubbish, and Cricklewood deserves better.
“Individuals and businesses need to know that we’ll come down on them hard if they dump their rubbish like this."
Anyone who sees rubbish being illegally dumped in the streets should report this using the Brent cleaner app or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.”
