Owners of Waste4Fuel recycling plant, St Paul's Cray, could be sent to prison after court order is obtained
The owners of a notorious recycling plant in Cornwall Drive, St Paul's Cray, could be sent to prison if they breach the terms of a court order obtained by the Environment Agency.
The news comes as fire engines were called to the Waste4Fuel site again today (September 3), following another fire.
News Shopper believes this is the eighth time a fire has ravaged the site in the last few months.
The court order was successfully applied for last week (August 29) after a hearing at the High Court.
As a result Waste4Fuel Ltd and their director, Bryan Hughes, have agreed to carry out work which includes the provision of two firebreaks by September 7 and 30 respectively.
Additionally they need to remove a specific area of shredded waste by September 19.
This work needs to be completed ahead of the full court order hearing at the High Court at a later date.
If either Waste4Fuel Ltd or Mr Hughes fail to comply with the actions they could be found guilty of contempt of court and may be fined, sent to prison or have assets seized.
