Landlord accused of fly-tipping tenants furniture and rubbish on the street
The landlord of a property in Manchester has been accused of fly-tipping waste and furniture from one of his tenant’s properties.
The tenant was left in ‘shock’ discovering his belongings were illegally dumped on grassland off a side street.
The waste included:
- Tables, wooden cabinets
- Soft furnishings
- Food waste
Tahsin Ali Jawdet, 57, admitted to not checking the cleaner for authorisation to dispose of waste and the individual has not been traced yet. He then pleaded guilty at Manchester Magistrates Court, where he was then ordered to pay £1,000 in fines and costs of rubbish clearance.
After the hearing, a member of the Manchester council said: “Residents should not have to suffer the consequences of such selfish crimes.”
They believe this prosecution is the start of cracking down on businesses and individuals responsible who dump waste.
