Alan Yarlett received an Anti-Social Behaviour Order last week for illegally setting fire to waste on land in Dartford, Kent.
He has been banned from being involved in any way with burning rubbish in England or Wales.
Dartford Magistrates Court heard that the Kent Fire Service had to fight around 40 fires at Yarletts skip company on Victoria Road, Dartford.
Local residents and businesses complained many times of smoke from the site, which did not have a waste management licence.
Yarlett was also sentenced to 240 hours of community service and ordered to pay £11,445 costs to the Environment Agency (EA), which brought the prosecution.
EA officer David Eden said: We are very pleased with the result. Mr Yarlett continually breached environmental legislation so the Anti-Social Behaviour Order is particularly important.
To enable us to monitor the waste industry, it is essential that everyone involved with carrying or managing waste has a valid licence.
We are confident this case sends out a strong message that those operating illegally will not get away with it.
The magistrates said Yarlett escaped a prison term because he pleaded guilty.
All types of waste were regularly left at Yarletts site, according to the EA.
