The owners of an Ilford kebab house and European food shop will have to fork out a combined total £5,863 after being caught fly-tipping.

Florian Corae, owner of Ilford Lane food store Gabriel Trading Ltd, was ordered to pay £4,634 after pleading guilty to fly-tipping offences when appearing in Barkingside Magistrates on Friday, November 9.

Hajar Mahvar, owner of Ali Baba Grill and Kebab Shop, in High Road, was ordered to pay £1,229 after he too pleaded guilty to fly-tipping offences at a hearing the same day.

The matter was taken to court after the businesses failed to pay fixed penalty notices issued by Redbridge Council.

Three bags of trade waste were found dumped opposite Gabriel Trading Ltd on December 4 last year, the court heard.

And – despite the business having a trade waste agreement with the council – more rubbish was found abandoned in the same spot two days later.

Corae was fined £2,000 for each both fly-tipping offences and ordered to pay costs of £427, a victim surcharge of £120 and clean-up costs of £87.

On February 5 this year, the council’s street cleansing team also found cardboard boxes dumped next to a waste bin in High Road.

Enforcement officers investigated the evidence with the trail of trade waste leading Ali Baba Grill and Kebab Shop, the court heard.

Mahvar, who had been trading for a few weeks, admitted responsibility for the boxes and was issued with a fixed penalty notice on the understanding she would obtain an agreement with a licensed and legal commercial waste clearance company.

But, Mahvar’s business was caught red-handed again when 10 bags of trade waste, including food, were discarded next to the same storage bins and more cardboard was dumped outside the shop on March 5 this year.

A fine of £660 - £220 for each offence – as well as costs of £427, clean-up costs of £112 and a victim surcharge of £30 were handed out to Mahvar.

Both cases were heard at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on 9 November 2018.

Cllr John Howard, cabinet member for civic pride, said: “Residents and businesses need to understand that their rubbish is their responsibility and it must be disposed of correctly.”
