Wayne Richards Rubbish

Wayne Richards Rubbish, Waste collector Richards, 36, deposited 28 truck loads of TVs, washing machines, fridges, mattresses and carpets on to the rotting mounds. The ‘unscrupulous’ criminal was paid to dispose of the refuse safely at licensed sites but wanted to maximise his profits.
He was given a 15-month prison term after admitting four counts of illegally depositing controlled waste and one of failing to keep a written description of rubbish he carried. Judge David Ticehurst, sentencing him at Bristol crown court, said: ‘Sites are unscrupulously chosen by people like you, without any regard to the potential hazards they may cause, whether to health, or to children or to any passers-by.’
Richards, a father-of-two from Bristol, was operating under the company name Richards Rubbish Clearance when the offences took place in 2009.
Environment Agency officials found waste on separate occasions behind a carbon plant and next to a lane in Bristol.
They were traced back to Richards through documents found in the rubbish. Some had come from rental properties which he had a contract to remove rubbish from.
The court was told Richards wanted to avoid paying the charges to dispose of it properly.
Richards claimed another company had been responsible for clearing waste for him but no trace could be found of the business.
The Environment Agency said that fly- tippers such as Richards leave taxpayers with ‘substantial’ clean-up costs.
