Harrow residents have been told they must take valid ID to the dump in order to dispose of their rubbish.
The move is part of a crackdown on people from outside the borough using the town’s waste disposal services.
Harrow Council said the waste and recycling centre at Forward Drive had seen an increase in the number of people coming to the tip with no proof they lived in Harrow.
There has also been a rise in businesses masquerading as residents in order to avoid paying fees.
Harrow residents have been advised to bring a valid photo ID and proof of address with them when going to the dump – preferably a driving licence.
Those coming from outside the borough must pay a £25 fee.
All van drivers are also charged to use the dump.
