A Chesterfield waste company has been sanctioned after breaching its environmental commitments.
The Environment Agency has partially suspended the environmental permit of Lindrick Project Management the company failed to comply with its conditions.
The firm accepted un-permitted waste onto its Mansfield Road site. It also created an increased risk of fire, dust and odour nuisance by storing waste outside, rather than in a building.
The suspension notice prevents the firm from bringing any more waste of any type onto its site. It must remove non-permitted waste before December 21.
An Environment Agency spokesman said: “The company has continued to store waste inappropriately on its premises, giving rise to dust and odour in the local vicinity and it must now take action to comply with permit conditions.
"Until this happens we will not allow them to bring any more waste onto the site. We will monitor the company’s progress closely over the coming weeks.”
