A chicken shop got handed a £1,660 court bill after repeatedly dumping rubbish on a garage forecourt.

Employees at Tasty Chicken Ilford Ltd, Ilford Lane, were caught dumping trade waste in an “unsuitable bin” at the adjacent Shell Petrol station.

Council enforcement officers caught them in the act on April 14, 2017 when they visited the shop, which had already received warnings about dumping rubbish in a skip.

The takeaway was handed a fixed penalty notice and advised to use appropriate receptacles for the storage and presentation of their trade waste.

Officers returned to the takeaway on Thursday, May 11, and saw that earlier warnings had not been heeded, with the takeaway’s waste once again being dumped in the bin on the garage forecourt.

The shop was served with a further fine and reminders about the earlier notice.

None of these were paid or appealed, and matters were referred to the magistrate’s court.

At Barkingside Magistrates, on Monday, December 18, the shop was found guilty of not complying with a requirement imposed by a waste collection authority.

They also failed to provide adequate receptacles for the storage of waste.

Tasty Chicken Ilford Ltd was order to pay a fine of £1,100 and a further £560 in charges for ignoring warnings.

The shop has until January 2, to pay the fine and costs.

Councillor Sheila Bain, cabinet member for civic pride, said: “All business owners must remember they have a legal responsibility to dispose of waste in a safe and legal manner.

“This particular takeaway failed to heed the advice given to them by our officers, failed to pay the fixed penalty notice and now has a substantial fine to pay.

“It sends out a clear message that we will not tolerate businesses who do not dispose of their waste properly.”
