Council “threaten” Indian restauranter

A restaurant boss says he has been ‘threatened’ by council chiefs – after one of his takeaway food boxes was found in the wrong recycling bin.

Shocked Irfan Shabir, owner of Maazi Indian restaurant in Matlock, was told he could be held responsible, after one of his boxes was found in a recycling collection bin meant for drinks cartons.

The box was discovered during a routine inspection of Derbyshire Dales District Council’s site at Sainsbury’s supermarket.

Waste management and recycling officer, Keith Hollinshead wrote to Mr Shabir telling him the box was “obviously dumped by one of your customers” and that he could “ultimately be held responsible for its disposal.”

Mr Hollinshead how stupid do you feel now?

Take a look at some panoramic photographs of Matlock on Peak District View. A prize to anyone who can see Mr Hollinshead in a recycling bin checking its contents.
