This giant pile of rubbish has to be cleared from a Sheffield recycling site within a fortnight, environmental bosses have ordered.
Action is being taken against Sheffield Recycling Services over its Manor Works site on Cricket Inn Road, close to the Sheffield Parkway.
The Environment Agency has served a suspension notice on the site over the ‘excessive waste’ that has built up.
A visit to the site last week by The Star showed a waste pile estimated to be over 40ft high. Further enforcement action could be taken if the waste is not removed by the end of the month.
It comes as administrators were appointed this month to run the company after a petition to wind up the firm was submitted in December.
A spokesman for the Environment Agency said: “The Environment Agency is taking action against Sheffield Recycling Services following reports of excessive waste at the site in Sheffield.
“Our officers have visited the site and have served a suspension notice with an order to clear the waste by the end of the month. We are monitoring progress of the clearance and will consider other enforcement options if the operator does not remove the waste.
“Anyone who experiences pollution from this or any other waste site is urged to report the matter to our incident hotline on 0800 807060 so we can investigate.”
A spokesman for Beesley Corporate Solutions has confirmed the company has been appointed as administrators to Sheffield Recycling Services but said it could not comment further.
According to Sheffield Recycling Services website, its clients include ‘mainly blue chip companies.’
