They discovered dumping took place in the early hours of the morning from a blue Mercedes Sprinter van registered to Kedri.
Covert CCTV footage was taken showing him dumping black bags fish waste on October 4, 8, 11 14, 17, 24 and 25 and on December 4.
The fish waste was from Kedri’s fishmonger business in Church Street Market in Paddington—the other side of London.
He leaves his home in Grafton Way off Tottenham Court Road, in the West End, around 4.30am to go to Billingsgate Market in East London.
Sometimes he would put the previous day’s fish waste into plastic bags and leave them on pavements where there was already rubbish out to make it easier for refuse collectors, the court heard.
Kedri was fined almost �2,000 for the offences, plus victim surcharge and �2,300 prosecution costs, totalling �4,300 to be paid within 28 days.
