The Environment Agency recently held one of their largest ever UK waste raids relating to the illegal disposal of hazardous waste.
The raid took place on a recycling site in Bristol.
The agency’s national crime teams were investigating the suspected illegal dumping and trading of hazardous materials.
The team investigated whether materials such as heavy metal and asbestos were involved.
The Environment Agency often stress the importance of people working in the waste industry to dispose of hazardous waste properly. Incorrect treatment of this kind of waste will incur severe penalties as disposing of hazardous waste incorrectly poses as a huge risk to public health.
