West Ealing Restaurant Owner Fined
Couldn't prove he was getting rid of business waste correctly
A restaurateur has been ordered to pay more than £1,300 for not proving that he was disposing of his business waste properly.
Mohammed Hosseiny, 31, who owns Persian Palace, Uxbridge Road, West Ealing, pleaded guilty to the offence at Ealing Magistrates’ Court. He was fined £800 with £545 costs.
Hosseiny, of St Peters Way, Ealing, was unable to produce waste transfer notes from 19 November and 8 January to show he was disposing of the business’s waste correctly.
He said he had been taking the waste to Greenford Re-use and Recycling Centre himself but was unable to prove this with waste transfer notes.
Commercial outlets must have a legal contract with a registered waste company, such as Ealing Council, and must be able to provide evidence by which they legally dispose of their waste. This must be a waste transfer note or waste contract from a licensed company or a receipt from a waste and recycling site.
Hosseiny has since joined up the council’s scheme to take away his rubbish.
