Fly tipper fined after being caught on camera

Harrow Times: Flytipper fined after being caught on camera Flytipper fined after being caught on camera

A builder caught on camera dumping construction waste behind shops has been fined and ordered to clear up the mess he made.

Laszlo Nagyvardi, aged 52, of Clayton Road, Hayes, was caught red-handed dumping waste in an area behind shops in Alexandra Avenue, in Rayners Lane in August last year.

Harrow Borough Council officers were able to trace Nagyvardi and during an interview he admitted dumping the waste, claiming he did not know he could take the waste to a recycling centre.

The council’s environmental services manager Richard Le-Brun said: “This case illustrates two things – first, the value of CCTV in keeping our streets clean, and the second that we can and will track down people who think they can dump rubbish with impunity.

“Mr Nagyvardi claimed he did not know he could take these items to the waste site and dispose of them properly. He certainly knows that now.”

At Willesden magistrates court he pleaded guilty to two fly tipping offences and one count of failure to produce a licence to transport controlled waste.

Well done Richard Le-Brun. Wonder how much this rogue was fined. They should make the punishment fit the crime and have him sweeping the dirtiest streets in Harrow for a week.

They can fine him as much as they please, but chances are he won't pay and will prove impossible to trace.

At the end of the day these people are willing to get to get caught now and again as they make far more money this way than if they paid to dispose of this waste on a regular basis.
