GR Shorthouse fined £4,000 over waste breaches

Skip haulier GR Shorthouse has been fined £4,000 for operating a regulated waste facility without an environmental permit and failing to ensure some of its waste transfer notes were correctly completed.

In an Environment Agency (EA) prosecution, Kidderminster Magistrates’ Court was told how in September 2010, officers from the agency received a report that waste materials were being stored at a site in the Doddington Heights area.

The company supplied 294 waste transfer notes – a written record of the waste coming into and out of the site – for the period between January 2009 and December 2010.

However it was discovered a number of these documents were not completed correctly.

In mitigation, the company told the court that the waste was stored on site due to resourcing problems – one driver was off sick and a lorry was off the road because it had failed its MOT.

The first charge was brought under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2010, while the remaining three were brought under the Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations 1991 and the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
