Suffolk: Company fined over illegal waste site
A PROPERTY services company has been fined �3,500 and asked to pay �2,500 costs over an illegal waste site.
Ipswich Magistrates’ Court heard that Stowbox Ltd had been depositing, treating, storing and disposing of waste at its premises at Woodfarm Business Centre in Crowfield, Ipswich, without being authorised by an environmental permit.
It had also failed to provide its customers with waste transfer notes, as required.
Miriam Tordoff, prosecuting for the Environment Agency, said that significant amounts of waste had been deposited, treated, stored and burned on site.
She said that bringing waste on site was commonplace and when Environment Agency officers attended they found a variety of rubbish from house clearances including fridges and freezers. The company pleaded guilty to the charges.
