DVLA and Brent Council slow to do anything about a untaxed uninsured nuisance Vehicles

Having an untaxed uninsured car on the public highway you would have thought the DVLA and the local council would act swiftly to remove it or clamp it, well actually this is not the case. 

What makes it worse is the untaxed uninsured vehicle is causing me to block my own fire escape, All Councils seem to state Health and Safty and the Environment is something that they want to make improvements to yet in this case Council claim they are unable to do anything about this, due to a 2 month and 1 day protocol which basically means they have wait a 2 months and a day for the tax to expire before they will take action seems ironic when there are a team of enforcement officers in Brent combing streets of Brent for cigarette butt droppers, I would of though 2 tonnes of  potentially hazardous Junk Metal stuck in front of a local business would have been more of a priority than a cigaratte butt.

I'm not sure if anyone remembers the DVLA advert on tv where the DVLA claimed they would catch you anywhere with no road tax well actually this statement is an untruth, Market Way in Wembley which is one of the most know areas in the world has been a dumping ground for untaxed cars for years on ends with no action every been taken.

It's all similar to to how the police work they put 20 officers in one place to pull over suspected criminals and leave everywhere else unpoliced rather than spread them around a bit to widen the net.

Basically no common sense.

To sum things up if we asked
BRENT COUNCIL, THE DVLA AND THE POLICE to change 20 light bulbs they would use 20 people to change them but use all 20 staff doing one bulb at a time taking 20 times longer, but of ofcourse it would take 6 months of paperwork and darkness to even get to that stage, You can really understand how our country has turned into the laughing stock of the world, when the people running our Country spend billions making up rules and laws which they don't even know how to enforce properly.

Low Scrap Metal Prices have lead to less Scrap Metal theft

Low Scrap Metal Prices have lead to less Scrap Metal theft

Scrap Metal theft has gone down this has made the police become more relaxed in their approach in catching unlicensed scrap dealers, unfortunately lots of unlicensed scrap dealers have sprung up in the last few months offering cash and sometimes even better rates than the licensed scrap dealers.

As far as I know it is an offence to sell your metal a unlicensed scrap dealer for cash, also scrap metal is a form of waste so it is also an offence to not have a proper paper trial in the form of waste transfer notes. 

We are a fully Insured and Licensed Scrap Dealer and will give you the correct paperwork once we have weighed and paid for your metal.

Sheraz Mohayudin dumped this industrial fridge on the streetSheraz Mohayudin dumped this industrial fridge on the street
Sheraz Mohayudin of Gama Halal Meat Butchers in Ealing Road, was slapped with the £1,855.50 fine at Willesden Magistrates’ Court after it was proven that he illegally dumped a large commercial fridge on the street.
The fridge was found and reported to the council by Veolia, its waste and recycling contractor.
Dennis Lewis, waste enforcement manager at Brent Council, said: “Illegally dumped rubbish is a serious issue and once reported to the council we will take all necessary measures to investigate the incident and won’t hesitate to prosecute the offenders”.
Brent Council has launched a ‘love where you live’ campaign urging residents to report any instances of illegal dumping to improve their neighbourhoods.
Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Brent Council’s lead member for the environment, said: “Most residents in Brent ‘Love where they live’ and make an effort to keep their streets clean and green. That’s why it’s so upsetting when people illegally dump rubbish; it brings down the appearance of the area and everyone suffers.
“Individuals and businesses need to know that we’ll come down on them hard if they dump their rubbish like this.
“If you ‘Love where you live’, please report illegally dumping rubbish with our Cleaner Brent app or email”

I can see this policy being spread across
the country, 

Please read article below.
Lichfield and Burntwood residents 
warned not to leave fridges and freezers 
out for scrap metal collectors
By  on 8th January, 2016
People living in Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to dispose
of unwanted fridges and freezers correctly.
Lichfield District Council said there had been an increase in the amount
of white goods being left on pavements or dumped across the region.
The local authority said residents have been leaving items on the street for
 scrap metal traders to take away – but because scrap metal disposal centres
 are no longer allowed to accept these appliances, the council believes that
rogue scrap metal collectors are removing the parts that can be easily sold,
such as the condensers and motors, and leaving the remaining items or dumping them.
Cllr Iain Eadie
Cllr Iain Eadie
Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet member for waste management
at Lichfield District Council, said: “It’s really important that
everyone understands their responsibilities around disposing of
unwanted goods to avoid fly-tipping penalties.
“Since metal recycling centres stopped accepting fridges and freezers,
because of the need to deal with CFC gasses, we’ve noticed a sharp rise
in how many are being left across the district.
“This is why we’re encouraging everyone to take unwanted items to
Household Recycling Centres, or use registered waste carriers to take
them away, to make sure their property does not come back to haunt them.”
The council is warning residents that placing items on the street for collection
by scrap metal dealers is classed as fly-tipping and could lead to a fine or
court action.
Bulky items such as fridges and freezers, as well as furniture, can be disposed
of at Household Recycling Centres in Lichfield and Burntwood.
“We want to take this opportunity to remind local people that you need to
 make sure that if you pay someone to remove and dispose of any waste on
your behalf that they are registered with the Environment Agency as a
waste carrier,” added Cllr Eadie.
Lichfield District Council also offers a bulky waste collection service.
It costs £15 to have one item removed, with extra items costing £6.20 each.
A maximum of four items can be removed at a time. Discounts are available
for anyone claiming housing benefit.
