£15,000 fine for repeat offender

A car breaker in Northern Ireland with previous convictions for waste crime has been fined £15,000 on three new offences.

Robert James Morrow was handed the fine and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy at Dungannon Crown Court on three charges of breaching the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997.

On 30 April 2014, Northern Ireland Environment Agency officers investigated a site, partially owned by and under the control of Morrow, at Bracky Road, Sixmilecross, County Tyrone.

They found the property and surrounding area was used as an unauthorised treatment and storage facility for more than 700 end-of-life vehicles, with second-hand parts stored at various locations.

The site did not have a waste management licence or a licence to operate as an authorised treatment facility for vehicles.

Morrow had been previously convicted in 2008 and 2010 for similar waste offences at the same site.
