Nottingham man fined for carrying waste without a licence

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

A 43-year-old Nottingham man has been forced to pay £2957 for carrying waste without a Waste Carriers’ Licence.

Darren Pike of Betts Avenue, Hucknall, failed to attend court and the case was proven in his absence.

Pike’s truck was found filled with waste including furniture, toys, a fridge and a soiled mattress.

Waste transfer notes and weighbridge tickets were found in the vehicle, demonstrating Pike had previously taken waste to two separate sites in Nottingham and Mansfield.

Sinead Chamberlain, environment officer at the Environment Agency, said: “This case demonstrates we will take action against those who do not operate within the confines of relevant regulations and we hope it will serve as an example for other waste carriers to make sure they have the relevant licence in place.”
