Waste firm fined for licence breach

Premier Waste Management has been ordered to pay £10,000 plus costs for failing to clear up litter originating from one of the companys landfill sites. The fine was in response to an incident at the Joint Stocks Quarry at Kelloe, Durham, after a case was brought by the Environment Agency. In court prosecutor Ben Reid explained how on April 13 2006 litter escaped from the facility but was not cleared up by the end of the day, contravening Premiers waste management licence.
