Fined Â£2,500 for waste offences
A Banbridge car breaker has been fined Â£2,500 for waste offences.
Glenn Baird (58) of Commercial Road was fined at Newry Magistrates’ Court for keeping end-of-life vehicles at his premises without the appropriate waste authorisations contrary to Article 4.1.b of the Waste & Contaminated Land (NI) Order 1997.
In January 2016, officers from the NIEA visited the defendant’s business premises at Dublinhill Road, Dromore, County Down and found him to be operating a car breaking and repair facility without the required waste management authorisations.
Officers noted over 200 end-of-life vehicles on site along with significant quantities of car components and body panels.
