This is the sort of tough action we need to be seen taking against these sort of operators who have no regard for Scotland’s environment. Every society has a series of waste streams, it’s important that they’re minimised, it’s important that, to the extent we have
them, they’re managed properly. This behaviour is the opposite of that, and SEPA will continue to take action against these sorts of operators and make sure they’re held to account. So
this is a message to good operators in the waste sector, that you won’t be undermined by this sort of poor performance. And it’s a message to the community that your environment will be looked after because we will find these sort of operators and make sure that the appropriate enforcement action is taken.
