On 10 May 2022 the EA served a Regulation 36 Enforcement Notice requiring Walley’s Quarry Limited (WQL) to improve its waste acceptance procedures, part of its written management system, by 10 June 2022. This was part of their wider upstream investigation and misdescription of waste campaign. I am grateful to the EA for informing about this at the time.
On Monday the EA withdrew the Enforcement Notice due to WQL submitting a revised waste acceptance procedures. The EA are satisfied with this new submission and say they will continue to monitor progress to ensure the improvements are being followed by 31 July 2022.
The community and I have no trust in WQL. Their actions, or inactions, speak louder than their words. We urgently need them to be held accountable for all the breaches so far and I will be meeting with the EA to press for this.
