A Dunmurry man has been fined for three breaches of waste management legislation following an incident in Crumlin two years ago.

Peter Antony Burke (26) of Burnside Close was fined £225 (plus court costs of £148 and a £15 offenders’ levy) at Antrim Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, January 28.

Officers from the Northern Ireland Environment Agency visited the site at Largy Road, Crumlin on February 5, 2014, where a quantity of waste tyres was deposited and stored on site without the relevant waste authorisation.

Mr Peter Burke, operating as BBR Recycling, did not hold the relevant waste management licence or an exemption to deposit or store waste tyres at this location.

Forfeiture was granted for the first time to the NIEA in respect of a 7.5 tonne goods vehicle (owned by the defendant) seized on site on 5 February 2014 under The Controlled Waste (Seizure of Property Regulations) (Northern Ireland) 2013.
