York Scrap Dealer Fined for Illegal Activity

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Luke Daniel Jamieson, 31, of Woodlea Avenue, was prosecuted at York Magistrates’ Court last Friday (12 May) and pleaded guilty to four offences.

These were:

  • acting as a scrap metal collector without holding the appropriate licence
  • carrying waste without holding a waste carrier’s licence
  • failing to keep the required records for collecting
  • and selling scrap metal.
  •          He was taken to court by City of York Council.
  •          To collect or trade in scrap metal legally, a collector’s or site licence must be acquired from the council – together with a waste carrier’s licence from the Environment Agency.
  • Jane Mowat, head of safer communities at City of York Council, said: “Any business or resident wanting to dispose of any scrap metal items must ensure that it is taken by an authorised and licensed scrap metal collector, or that it is safely disposed of at a local household waste recycling centre.
  •          “Scrap metal left on a kerb or roadside presents a hazard, potential pollutant and may be taken for abandoned waste or fly tipping.
  •          “The person who put it there could be given a fixed penalty notice of up to £400.”
  •          Before his court appearance, Mr Jamieson applied for and was granted the necessary licence to carry waste, and has submitted an application for his scrap metal dealer’s licence.
  •          The court issued Mr Jamieson fines totalling £300 and ordered him to pay £300 in costs and a £120 surcharge.
