Firm fined for Loanhead site

An Edinburgh firm was fined £4,000 in total at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Thursday after pleading guilty to breaching Waste Management Licence conditions relating to dust and waste storage at Eldin Industrial Estate .

Caledonian Industrial Limited, then trading as Caleco Waste, admitted to failing to carry out water spraying of stockpiles containing dry, crushed and screened waste materials in order to prevent particulate emissions to air, and also having stockpiles of waste exceeding 3m in height.

Both these incidents were breaches of a Waste Management Licence held by the company. The matter was investigated by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
