New waste fine - total payout £215,000

Lee Averies, formerly the director of a badly-run waste firm in Swindon, has been handed a £200,000 confiscation order and insructed to pay costs of £15,000 to the Environment Agency. He was banned from working in the industry for five years in 2016, his brother David being given a suspended sentence and a £54,000 bill in fines at the same time.
