SR Waste Recycling, which had its environmental permits revoked earlier this month, has gone into liquidation and its director has pleaded guilty to a charge of breaching an environmental permit.
Simon Robinson, director, and the company both faced charges related to SR Waste Recycling’s facilities in Barnsley after the Environment Agency revoked permits regarding the storage of WEEE material.
The charges against the company were dropped as it is no longer in operation but Robinson was ordered to pay a £3,325 fine, £1,500 costs and a £32 victim surcharge.
The charge in full read: “Between 14 December 2011 and 23 June 2014 SR Waste Recycling Limited did fail to comply with environmental permit SR2008No23 in that it accepted waste at the site at DTS Recycling Centre, Shaw Lane, Carlton, Barnsley that was not of a type listed in condition 2.2 and table 2.2 of that permit contrary to Regulation 38(2) of the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010.
“And that offence was committed with Simon Robinson’s consent connivance or attributable to his neglect as an officer of that company.”
