Restaurant Fined For Dumping Rubbish
Staff caught flytipping by CCTV cameras
A West Ealing restaurant has been fined £2,000 for continually dumping rubbish bags on the pavement.
Staff at the Mangal restaurant on Uxbridge Road were caught on CCTV camera on 11 occasions for fly-tipping offences over a period of two months last year.
This was despite the fact Mangal Restaurant had previously paid for commercial waste sacks from Ealing Council.
Diren Limited - the owners- failed to attend Ealing Magistrates' Court on March 25 and were fined 1,000 in their absence and ordered to cover the council's legal costs of £989.
Keith Townsend, director of environment and customer services, said:
“The CCTV evidence clearly shows staff in this restaurant dumping waste illegally on the public footpath and that is totally unacceptable. I’m pleased this is reflected in the court’s verdict and I hope the case serves as a reminder that we will prosecute those who fly-tip in Ealing.
