THE owner of a Dewsbury takeaway has been convicted of fly-tipping after he dumped 18 bags of rubbish.
Raja Faisel Aziz, who runs Rajas on Huddersfield Road in Ravensthorpe, was found guilty at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court of three offences, including fly-tipping waste on nearby Bradbury Street.
He was also found guilty for not providing trade waste disposal documents and for not having a bin to suitably contain his waste. This meant there were bags of rubbish dumped in the rear yard of his business that were accessible to vermin.
Aziz, previously convicted for a similar offence in 2013, was fined £2,000 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £120 and £638.61 costs.
