Dorset businessman ran an illegal waste transfer station

A Dorset businessman has been found guilty of operating an illegal waste transfer station, at which untreated sewage waste was stored and “bulked up”. Checks by the Environment Agency  showed the company failed to keep proper waste transfer notes, out of over three thousand such notes less than one hundred contained appropriate information, that procedures were inadequate and that staff working for the company hadn’t been properly trained. The company is now facing fines and costs of more than £40,000.
