Five-figure fines for firms in asbestos, chemical drum offences

Illegal disposal of asbestos waste at an in-house landfill led to a £12,000 fine plus £8,900 costs for brake pad manufacturer BBA Friction on 7 October. In other recent waste cases, the Environment Agency has secured hefty fines for the burning of waste on open ground and prosecuted a company for wrongly labelling drums of hazardous waste as "empty".
