Portadown scrap merchant fined for waste offences

A Portadown scrap merchant pleaded guilty and was fined £300 at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court today for illegal waste offences.

Mr Donal Kieran Hamill (59) of Obins Street, Portadown was also ordered to pay a compensation order of £1,790, £34 court costs and a defenders levy of £15

In November 2013, officers from the Northern Ireland Environment Agency visited a site being operated by Mr Hamill where they found a range of waste- tyres, barrels, vehicle parts, car batteries, rubber matting, metal crates and wooden pallets.

The compensation order was set to reflect the cost of fees avoided, as Mr Hamill held neither a waste management licence nor an exemption for his site.
