Kent firms and director to pay out £234,000

Falsifying duty of care notes and tipping wastes illegally on golf courses and farmland has led three waste firms to pay out nearly a quarter of a million pounds

Three waste firms and a company director have been ordered to pay a total of £233,670 after admitting to illegally depositing waste on golf courses and farms in Kent and East Sussex.

Countrystyle Recycling Ltd, FGS AGRI Ltd and the owner and director of both companies Trevor Heathcote pleaded guilty at Canterbury magistrates court on 30 October to charges relating to the illegal deposit of waste.

The offences took place between January and July 2011. Countrystyle Recycling and Heathcote also admitted committing duty of care offences over the period, related to the movement of screening ‘fines’, a waste produced by processing skip and dustcart waste, at their waste transfer stations at Folkestone and Strood.
