The sentencing followed an investigation by Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers between November 2015 and April 2016, who found an estimated 3,942 tonnes of waste buried at Morrow’s property on Ballydrain Road. Morrow did not have the required waste management permit or appropriate exemption in place.
