Waste Director Prosecuted for Iillegal Ghana WEEE Exports

The director of an East London recycling firm has received a 40-week suspended prison sentence following 11 failed attempts to illegally ship WEEE to Ghana.

Moses Appiah, the 57-year-old sole director of Appiahdeep Company Ltd in Rainham, was sentenced at Barkingside Magistrates Court this week (January 19) after pleading guilty to 11 offences of transporting hazardous waste.

Appiahdeep Company Ltd also pleaded guilty to 11 identical offences, and was fined £18,500 and ordered to pay £1,000 towards costs.

The court heard that 11 shipping containers loaded with waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) were intercepted by the Environment Agency prior to export to Ghana between August 2012 and June 2013

The containers included a large amount of hazardous items such as unpackaged cathode ray tube televisions and fridge freezers.

In each case, the containers were filled with items from and loaded at Appiahdeep Company Ltd’s premises at Dovers Corner Industrial Estate, Rainham. The address for the company is a warehouse, which the Environment Agency claimed was filled with used electrical and electronic equipment.
