Waste management firm fined £125,000 for releases of odour

A waste management firm has been fined £125,000 for causing odour pollution at its Leeds and Bradford Sites and ordered to pay £75,000 costs. The company was prosecuted following repeated odour problems which had a detrimental effect on local residents.  Between June 2012 and October 2013 Environment Agency officers carried out some seventy-five odour assessments most of which recorded smells which were likely to cause offence to human senses
