The owners of a café have been ordered to pay more £2,000 for failing to prove that waste was disposed of correctly.
The Gourmet Chef in Tudor Parade, Chadwell Heath High Road, was taken to court by the council after officers carried out an investigation in relation to fly-tipping in the area.
The owners were fined £1,000, ordered to pay costs of £900 and a victim surcharge £110 during a hearing at Barking Magistrates’ Court on December 4.
Cllr Laila Butt, cabinet member for crime and enforcement, said: “We will be relentless in pursuing businesses or individuals who don’t play by the rules or those who fail to help us make a cleaner, better Barking and Dagenham.
“My message is clear - if you do the grime crime – you will face a fine or worse.”
