Tyrone man fined £500 for illegal waste
A Co Tyrone man has been £500 for a series of waste offences.
Kevin McGrade (47), of Aghnamoe Road, Dromore, was fined for dumping controlled waste, and received a two-year conditional discharge for keeping controlled waste without a waste management authorisation.
He appeared at Omagh Magistrates' Court yesterday.
On four occasions between March 2015 and June 2016, NI Environment Agency (NIEA) officers found around 2,600 tonnes of controlled waste on land at Aghnamoe Road, Dromore.
Mr McGrade did not have authorisation for the waste on the site. It has now been removed at his own expense.
