A local business has been fined £300 for failing to have the relevant documentation for the disposal of their trade waste.

Powys County Council’s Waste Awareness and Enforcement Team has issued a £300 fixed penalty notice on a Llanidloes shop.

"The fixed penalty notice was issued after complaints had been received about black bags building up in a private court yard in the town. A waste enforcement officer investigated and carried out checks on local businesses in the immediate area," said a council statement.
 
"The businesses were requested to produce waste transfer notes to show where their waste was being taken and failed to produce the relevant document and received a fixed penalty notice, which has been paid."

The council hasn't named the business concerned.
 
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste, said: “We want local business to thrive in Powys but to do this we need to ensure that all businesses are complying with the law.
 
“It is vital that all businesses are aware of their legal responsibilities surrounding proper storage, transportation and disposal of controlled waste.  Waste is tightly regulated for a good reason.
 
“Our team take an intelligence-led approach to verify that waste is not being disposed of illegally but we can carry out spot-checks on business at any time so it is important to make sure businesses keep their paperwork in order.
 
“Ultimately this will help to protect the environment and public health by making sure all commercial refuse and recycling is only handled by professional operators so we can be sure that it doesn’t end up in the wrong place.”
