Carlsberg may make probably the best larger in the world - but it is almost certainly not the most environmentally friendly disposer of hazardous waste.
The UK branch of the multinational brewer has been fined £25,000 for illegally depositing of strong acids and alkalis.
Environment Agency (EA) officers brought the case after discovering 650 Carlsberg drums at a plastics recycling company, many containing the special wastes
EA enforcement officer Paul Salter said: "It is Carlsberg UK's responsibility to make sure that its waste is disposed of correctly and by a company that is licensed to receive it.
"In this case, Carlsberg failed to do this and as a result, potentially hazardous waste was given to a company that did not have a waste management licence to deal with it.
"The law recognises that companies need to take responsibility for their waste disposal, and this has been highlighted by the large fine handed down by magistrates to Carlsberg UK."
