Dagenham garage fined for failing to provide waste disposal documents

Barking and Dagenham Council enforcement officers attended New Dagenham Ltd in August 2019

A routine trade waste inspection by Barking and Dagenham Council enforcement officers has landed a Dagenham garage a fine of nearly £2,000.

Council officers visited New Dagenham Gearbox Ltd on August 22, 2019 and issued them with a notice for them to provide their waste transfer notes for the last two years for general waste, used car parts, used engine oil and also cardboard and recycling waste. 

A waste transfer note is a document that details the transfer of waste from one person to another and a business must keep one for disposal of commercial waste for two years and must show them to local authorities when required to do so. 

New Dagenham Gearbox Ltd were required to provide their waste transfer notes and were given 14 days to do so, something they failed to do; they were given an extra seven days to comply with the council’s request but still failed to provide their notes. 

They were then issued with a £300 fixed penalty notice which they failed to pay despite being given an extension to do so, this led to them being summoned to appear before a magistrates. 

On Tuesday 16, November 2021, in their absence, they were found guilty at Barkingside Magistrates Court. 

They’ve been order to pay a fine of £1,400, cover the costs of Barking and Dagenham Council to the tune of £769 and a victim surcharge of £140, totalling £1,909. 

Councillor Margaret Mullane, Cabinet Member for Enforcement and Community Safety said: “It is a legal responsibility for businesses operating in our borough to make sure that they’re playing by the rules and disposing of their waste properly and keeping a record of it.

“This is important, so we can ensure that no harm is being caused to the environment. I hope other businesses take note of this and if they’re not doing so already, start keeping notes of their disposed waste.”
