Waste offender’s permit revoked

A waste operator has his permits revoked following a string of offences, the Environment Agency has announced.

John Albert Gizzi of Tan y Fron Road, Abergele, carried waste as part of his J&T Gizzi Builders’ company and stored waste at Colomendy Industrial Estate in Denbigh in the name of North Wales Skip Hire.

Both licences have been revoked by the Welsh Environment Agency.

The move follows Gizzi pleading guilty in April 2011 to charges of illegally disposing of waste on farmland in Conwy and Denbighshire and not storing or treating waste properly.

An Environment Agency statement said: “These were the latest in a string of offences which led to a number of enforcement actions by Environment Agency Wales. Most of the actions taken by the agency were not obeyed by Mr Gizzi.”

A spokesman added: “This person has shown a consistent disregard for the rules which all waste operators must comply with.

“Not only was he threatening or damaging the environment by his actions, he was also undercutting legitimate operators who work within the law.

“We want to work with waste operators to make sure they do not damage the environment - but if they fail to stick to the rules, they need to be aware that there will be consequences for their business.

“We will not allow people in the waste industry to carry on operating in this way.”

Gizzi is also subject to ongoing proceeds of crime investigation into earlier offences.
