Waste convictions haulier loses O-licence appeal

  • 07 November 2011
  • By Roger Brown

Skip operator Springwood Trading – which had its O-licence revoked for failing to inform the Traffic Commissioner’s office about the convictions of its director for illegal waste offences – has lost an appeal to win it back.

Upper Tribunal judge Mark Hinchliffe also upheld the March decision of Elizabeth Perrett, North Eastern Deputy Traffic Commissioner (DTC), to disqualify the director of the Todmorden, West Yorkshire-based business, Mark Butterworth, for a 12 month period.

In May 2010, Butterworth was convicted at Bradford Crown Court of 11 offences of illegal use of a waste transfer site.

He was sentenced to eight months in prison suspended for 12 months, 100 hours unpaid work and given a curfew – 10pm to 6am for three months with an electronic tag.

Neither Springwood nor Butterworth notified these convictions to the TC’s office.

In its grounds of appeal, Springwood said Mark Butterworth had not had any dealings with the company since 19 May 2010 when he had resigned as a director.

It claimed that Jason Butterworth had become a director and had “filed the relevant paperwork with Companies House”.

However, the TC’s office said it had not been informed of any resignations at the business in 2010
