Westcombe Waste Ltd, the operator of a waste facility, has been fined £5,105 and ordered to pay costs of £4,982 for failing to install anti-pollution measures. Westcombe pleaded guilty to two offences under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2007; namely, operating in breach of an environmental permit and failing to comply with a formal Environment Agency notice. The notice required Westcombe to ensure all waste was deposited and sorted on an impermeable hardstanding with sealed drainage, a silt trap and oil interceptor to ensure any polluting run-off is trapped. Following an inspection in 2008 revealing that this system was not in place, a notice was issued in early 2009 requiring the necessary works to be undertaken within six months. The required changes had still not been made over nine months after this deadline.
