BEE services (UK) limited of Woodside, Epping, has been given a £5,000 fine after waste from the company was fly-tipped on Weald Hall Lane, Thornwood and Old House Lane, Roydon in November 2015.
The Director, Mr Bill Johal, paid £732.44 in court costs along with a victim surcharge of £170.
Prosecution for fly-tipping in Roydon
Failed duty of care
At court, he pleaded guilty on behalf of the cleaning company for failing in their duty of care when disposing of waste.
The company must also pay £100 to Epping Forest District Council for clear up costs of the rubbish which consisted of black sacks of shredding, old files, wood material, cardboard boxes, envelopes addressed to the company and other waste relating to the business and the renovation of offices.
Waste from the company was usually sent to be disposed of at their premises in Kent, but on this particular occasion it had been given to a man in a van, without checking he had the correct waste disposal licence and without exchange a waste transfer note.
Businesses must take responsibility
Cllr Will Breare-Hall, Environment portfolio Holder at Epping Forest District Council said: ”Businesses that produce commercial waste have a duty of care to dispose of their rubbish properly and must always check that anyone they give their rubbish to has the correct licence and exchange the right documents. ”
