Councillor Ian Corbett, mayoral advisor for environment and leisure, said: “Dumping rubbish in our borough’s streets is not a victimless crime - it is a blight that is affecting the lives of our law abiding residents.
“It creates an bad impression of the borough, leads to vermin problems and one black bag can often quickly become a collection of rubbish on a street corner, which is costly to clear up.
“Newham Council does not shy away from taking action against those that are intent on ruining our environment for others. We will pursue them to court if we have to so that they get a criminal record, and the council gets our costs back.”
