Curry fly tipper has car seized


Suba Miha caught dumping left over curry and ghee in Birmingham street

A RESTAURATEUR who repeatedly dumped left over curry and ghee has been found guilty of fly tipping.

Suba Miha, who owns the Cardamom restaurant in Swan Street, Alcester, Warwickshire, fined £900, plus £700 costs, and has had his vehicle seized following the conviction.

Birmingham Magistrates Court was told Miha repeatedly drove to Westley Street in Nechells, Birmingham, and dumped waste from his restaurant, including left over curry and ghee, and oil containers.

Following complaints from members of the public, council officers went undercover and caught Miha in the act.

Miha today admitted the offence at Birmingham Magistrates Court, and the court also granted the council’s request that his vehicle be seized with a forfeiture order, the first seizure made by Regulatory Services under new powers.

Mark Croxford, Head of District Services at Birmingham City Council, said: “I am pleased that the court has treated this offence with the seriousness it deserves. Residents have the right to live in a clean environment, and it beggars belief that someone would go out of their way to drive into the city to dump food waste instead of disposing of it legally. The message to fly tippers is clear, don’t dump your rubbish in Birmingham, we will catch you, and you will pay a heavy price.”
