Francis Gerard Mc Parland (62) of 44 Glen Road, Jerrettspass, Newry was today fined £6,000 at Newry Magistrates Court for two breaches of waste management legislation (plus a £15 offender’s levy).

The company F Mc Parland & Co Ltd., also of 44 Glen Road, Jerrettpass, Newry, was also fined £6,000 for one breach of waste management legislation (plus a £15 offender’s levy).

Between November 2014 and August 2016, officers from the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) investigated a site at 44 Glen Road Jerrettspass, Newry where approximately 30,143 tonnes of controlled waste was infilled without a waste management or appropriate exemption being in place for the waste.

Controlled waste found on the site included concrete, bricks, electrical wiring, metal, textiles, plastics, timber, breeze blocks and cabling mixed with soil stones and clay.  

NIEA works continuously to protect conserve and improve the environment and the outcome of this case assists in achieving that.
