Prosecution by the Environment Agency (EA) of Powerday over licensing issues at its main London site, has been adjourned.
The waste management company appeared before Harrow Crown Court on 28 April over alleged breaches to the Environmental Protection Act.
The EA has brought six charges related to waste disposal at Powerday’s Willesden facility in 2010.
A Powerday spokesperson said: “Powerday instigated this preparatory hearing to address a key aspect of law, regarding an ambiguity in our Willesden licence at that time.
“We are at the early stages of this process and it is therefore premature to prejudge any outcome of the preparatory hearing or any subsequent proceedings.
“Powerday has invested substantially in the last four years in modern and innovative infrastructure at our state of the art recycling facility at Willesden. Since 2011 we have also agreed a variation to our Environmental Permit with the EA and compliance remains a top priority for our business.”
