EE has been hit with an £840 fine by Camden Council, for fly tipping 25 bags of rubbish on Camden High Street, outside a rival phone shop.
On March 29 last year, council officers found the bags of rubbish outside Carphone Warehouse.
After looking at the bags, they found they belonged to Camden Town’s EE Shop, less than 100 yards away.
They issued an on-the-spot fine to the store, which they failed to pay.
The authority had already written to the shop, reminding them how to properly dispose of rubbish in December 2016.
