Waste operation ordered to cease as appeal fails

  • 10 June 2014
  • By Roger Brown

The Planning Inspectorate has dismissed Oakham Environmental Waste Recycling Centre’s appeal against the revocation of its environmental permit by the Environment Agency (EA).

In May 2013 the EA revoked the company’s permit at Oak Farm, Kingswinford, West Midlands for allowing a series of breaches to occur.

These included: too much waste on site; no technically competent manager; waste tipped and stored outside the appropriate bunkers; and significant amounts of waste tipped outside the permit area.

The skip haulier, with an O-licence for five vehicles, failed to comply with a series of enforcement notices.
Following rejection of the appeal the company has now been ordered to remove all of the waste from the site within six weeks.

EA spokesman Jonathan Hall said: “We will not tolerate operators who continually breach the conditions of their permits, or pose unacceptable risks to the environment.

“We’re taking action against poorly performing waste sites because, in our opinion, these permit holders are not competent to operate in line with their permits and their operations pose a serious risk to the environment,” he added.

“Failure to comply with an environmental permit is an offence and undermines those legitimate businesses which make sure they do comply.”
