Two years’ prison for illegal waste site operator in Halifax

Posted on 2 February 2016

The owner of a Halifax skip hire firm has been jailed for two years for running an illegal waste site where treated waste wood was also being illegally burned.

65-year-old David Turner, of Farrar Mill Lane in Siddal, was sentenced last week (January 28) at Bradford Crown Court after admitting waste charges brought by the Environment Agency.

He will serve another two years in prison on top of the time he is already serving in custody for separate charges, which relate to him failing to pay in excess of £75,000 claimed against him through the Proceeds of Crime Act over previous waste offences.
