Hanson fined for dust pollution

Hanson Concrete has been fined environmental offences at its ready mixed concrete works in West London.
The firm pleaded guilty to five offences between May 2014 and April 2015 after breaching its environmental permit relating to dust emission, spillages and storage of waste at its plan in Acton.

The company also breached an enforcement notice in April 2015 that required it to clean lorry wheels.

Hanson Concrete has operated from Horn Lane for 50 years, but in 2010 demolished its old site that included a wheel washing facility for lorries.

In 2011 the supplier gained permission to re-open but with strict controls to cut pollution and limit the impact on Acton residents.

Hanson Concrete has been fined £110,600.

Hanson has now made a number of changes to better manage the site, including new wheel washing equipment and an additional pollution monitor.
