Edinburgh-based Oran Environmental Solutions has been convicted of charges related to the operations of a waste transfer station in Falkirk.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) said the company was found guilty at Falkirk Sheriff Court of “repeatedly breaching licence conditions” at the former Carron Works Waste Transfer Station between July and December 2012.
The charges related to failing to minimise the presence of insects, birds and vermin and storing unsorted waste awaiting treatment beyond a licensed seven-day period.
Sepa said it had reported the company to the prosecuting authority following complaints from residents.
Sepa’s reporting officer, Susan Shirley, said: “Sepa will always seek to work with operators to help them achieve compliance, however for those who repeatedly breach licence conditions, enforcement action is inevitable.”
Sentencing was deferred to 30 September.
