St Regis ordered to pay £455,000

Paper recycling firm St Regis has been ordered to pay a fine, costs and a confiscation order. It is making a partial appeal.

Paper recycling giant St Regis has been fined £162,100 for offences including falsification of records and breaching permit conditions at its Higher Kings mill in Cullompton, Devon. The offences happened between 2005 and 2008.

Exeter crown court also imposed £68,000 in costs and a £225,000 confiscation order on the firm, bringing its bill to more than £450,000. The confiscation is the second largest obtained by the Environment Agency, and the UK’s fourth largest fine under the EU pollution prevention and control regime, or its UK predecessor, integrated pollution control.
