The former owner of a Hanwell restaurant will have to pay out £6,399 after staff were caught fly-tipping.
Mr Hamid Aria, who was the proprietor of a the Afghan Khayber restaurant -on the Uxbridge Road which is now operated by new owners - appeared at Brentford Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 14 October to plead guilty to seven counts of failing in his duty to ensure the restaurant’s waste was disposed of correctly.

The prosecution follows an operation in July 2009 by the council’s envirocrime officers. The team used CCTV cameras to catch restaurant staff repeatedly dumping black sacks full of the business’ waste, just metres from its front door.
Cabinet member for Transport and Environment, Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, said:

"Ealing Council works hard to keep the borough’s streets clean and free from waste. I’m appauled that some businesses think it’s ok to dump their rubbish in the street which ends up costing taxpayers. By pursuing irresponsible business owners who dump waste illegally through the courts we are sending a clear message that fly-tipping will not be tolerated.”

He was fined £250 for each offence and ordered to pay costs of £4,634.59 plus a victim surcharge of £15, totalling £6,399.59.
