Residents and companies warned in Barnsley that they could be fined if they use two banned skip hire and waste management companies

Share

The Environment Agency is warning residents and companies in and around Barnsley that they could be fined if they use two skip hire and waste management companies after their permits were revoked for environmental offences.

The decision to revoke the permits of Grantscope Limited and RG Wastecare Limited was made following a prosecution by the Environment Agency, after surveillance showed the companies were regularly disposing of waste by burning it at their site at Boulder Bridge, Shaw Lane, Carlton, Barnsley.

On 4 January 2012 Barnsley Magistrates found the two companies guilty of these environmental offences and they were ordered to pay fines of £10,000 each.

The companies had appealed to the Planning Inspectorate against the revocation of their environmental permit in April 2012. However, on 20 November 2012 the Inspector upheld the Environment Agency’s decision and confirmed the permit revocation for the waste transfer station should stand.

The Planning Inspector also agreed with the Environment Agency’s decision to remove both companies’ registrations as waste carriers, which previously allowed them to legally transport waste.

Ian Harrison of the Environment Agency said: “After the January prosecution we carried out an assessment to decide whether the companies were competent to continue operating. We decided that the impact of the offences had been serious and that the risk of the companies re-offending was significant enough to revoke their permit.

“Following the Planning Inspectorate decision the permit revocation is now in effect, and the companies are not legally allowed to transport or accept waste. Householders should be aware that using an unregistered waste carrier to take away their waste could result in fines of up to £5,000, and for businesses the fines could be even higher. Information on registered waste carriers can be found on the Environment Agency website.”

The companies also use a number of trading names, including Star Skips and Mad Metals.
