Cambridgeshire County Council has fined its waste contractor £500,000 for missing its target
Waste disposal company Amey has been fined half a million pounds for sending too much of Cambridgeshire’s biodegradable waste to landfill.
The company said the missed target was due to its Waterbeach treatment facility being damaged in storm Erik in February.
Cambridgeshire County Council levied the £500,000 penalty charge when the waste contractor failed to meet its contractual obligations to the council in the financial year 2018/19.
