Any company which has spill is liable for all clean up expenses, under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Also, The Environment Agency can impose fines that can reach hundreds of millions of pounds – depending on the level of harm, culpability, negligence and recklessness of those responsible along with the size of the company – company directors can also face a custodial sentence. It is worth noting that in 2017/18, The Environment Agency prosecuted 22 company directors. Fortunately, you can rely on 1st Industrial and Commercial Services to help you keep clean up expenses to a minimum through our experience, skills and efficiency.
