Biffa pleads not guilty to illegally exporting waste to Indonesia and India

Waste giant Biffa has appeared again in court this week over allegations that it has been illegally exporting household waste abroad.

On Tuesday at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court, the firm pleaded not guilty to four charges of illegally exporting household waste to India and Indonesia between October 2018 and February 2019.

The Environment Agency (EA), which brought the prosecution, says Biffa contravened the 2007 Transfrontier Shipment Regulations.

In June, Biffa was found guilty of breaching the the same laws in 2015, with seven containers of mixed paper due for export to China from Felixstowe contaminated with household waste, including dirty nappies.
