Waste still at site

THE firm that operates a waste business at Blackbridge Farm has still not cleared waste it was supposed to three months ago.

The Environment Agency had served a notice to Think Environmental at Blackbridge Farm, near Burton Latimer, which said the firm had to remove 3,000 tonnes of the illegally stored waste by the end of January.

The action was demanded after the firm deposited waste material on the site in contravention of its planning permission.

In a report to be discussed by the county council next week, the firm claims it does not have any money to pay for the removal.

The Enivronment Agency could take further action.
