Waste offences cost supermarket £77,000

A supermarket has been ordered to pay £77,000 for three waste offences, a court heard last week

The small supermarket in the Birmingham suburb of Alum Rock fly-tipped its waste rather than pay for it to be collected legitimately, magistrates found on Thursday.

Saif Supermarket Ltd was found guilty in its absence of three breaches of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, following a prosecution by Birmingham City Council. These were two charges of depositing controlled waste without an environmental permit, contrary to section 33(1)(a), (6) and (8) of the act, and failing to supply written information on how it disposed of waste, contrary to regulation 35 of the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 and section 34(5) and (6) of the act.
