A transport maintenance firm has been ordered to pay more than £3,500 for failing to produce waste transfer notes.
Qualview Limited of Davenport Centre, in Renwick Road, Barking, was prosecuted at Romford Magistrates Court as part of a Barking and Dagenham Council crack-down on grime crime.
Cllr Laila Butt, cabinet member for crime and enforcement, said: “We are checking all firms across the borough to see whether they have transfer notes for their business waste as part of our wider crackdown on grime crime.”
All commercial companies should have adequate waste provisions and are required by law to keep waste transfer notes for up to two years – to ensure rubbish is disposed legally.
The council has handed out 1,051 fines relating to enviro-crime offences in the past 12 months – half of those on-the-spot fines for litter louts.

Cllr Butt added: “We are getting tough on the selfish few who spoil our streets.”
The council has also removed or investigated 929 abandoned vehicles during that time.
