South Armagh waste company Transco Waste Limited, and its former Director Mr Vivian Devlin (36), were today fined a total of £6,000 plus £72 court costs at Newry Magistrates Court for unauthorized waste activities.

During a site inspection in November 2011 at the company’s waste transfer facility at 124 Concession Road Cullaville, officials from the Northern Ireland Environment Agency discovered that both plasterboard and hazardous waste in the form of fuel laundering waste were being stored on site.

Neither material was permitted in the company’s licence for the site. Both the Company and its sole Director at the time, Mr Vivian Devlin, were fined £1,000 for each offence under Article 4 of the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997.
