Dumped waste at Warren Farm

This was the site recently at Warren Farm after 160 tonnes of rubbish was illegally dumped on the land. Warren Farm is Metropolitan Open Land within the borough which has in the past been used as a sports facility for schools and local community groups and controversially is to become the home of QPR's new training academy.

Ealing Council says the waste came from Ealing addresses and from neighbouring boroughs and has now cleared it. Ealing is working with the Environment Agency and other west London councils to identify those responsible, if convicted, they could face fines and legal costs of amounting to thousands of pounds

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for transport, environment and leisure, said:

''The vast majority of householders want to do the right thing with their waste, but unfortunately, there are a few that are prepared to use disreputable, illegal companies and individuals just to save themselves a few pounds.

"The message that I would like these residents to receive loudly and clearly is that someone always pays in the end and at the moment all Ealing council tax payers are footing the bill. However, we are in the process of identifying those responsible for this environmental crime- the people who dumped the waste and the householders that it originated from- and we will be pursuing them all to recover our costs.

“I would ask all of our residents to stop and think the next time someone knocks at their door and asks to clear their waste. Ask for their details so you can check if they are licenced. If they are not licenced, they will be taking your waste and dumping it in our green spaces, parks and rivers regardless of what they say to the contrary and what can seem like a cheap deal at the time could ultimately end up costing you thousands of pounds in fines.”
