An estate agents in Dagenham must cough up £841 after failing to prove it was disposing of its waste properly.

Anglowide Estates in Green Lane did not produce relevant documents during a routine inspection in September last year.

The company was given a fortnight to hand over waste transfer notes covering the previous two years, but sent incomplete records — which arrived late.

Anglowide was summoned to appear in court after failing to pay a £300 fine.

Friday, April 13 proved unlucky for the company, which that day pleaded guilty to the offence at Barkside Magistrates’ Court.

Anglowide were fined £240 with 28 days to stump up the cash, and ordered to pay £571 costs and a £30 victim surcharge.

“We encourage our local businesses to comply with the waste regulations and ensure they have the relevant documents if they are visited in a routine inspection,” said Jonathon Toy of Barking and Dagenham Council.
