£23,000 bill and suspended sentence for illegal waste site

The firm he worked for has also been made to pay more than £21,000 at a hearing just before Christmas.

Adam Wilcott was in charge of the Highgate Services Ltd site at Trevol Business Park, formerly operated by local company, Wilco’s Waste Management Ltd.
