The Environment Agency served it with a suspension notice on 3 January after officers discovered waste being treated and stored inadequately. The breaches included inadequate segregation of incompatible wastes; failure to assess, sort, segregate and label wastes after two weeks of receiving it; and unstable storage of containers. Chemicals had also been incorrectly labelled.
PPC Compliance Officer Iain Storer, who carried out the inspection, said that even a minor accident at the site could have escalated "putting staff and surrounding businesses at risk of fire and toxic fumes."
The Agency lifted the notice on 5 January after Envirosol addressed its concerns.
