Randers Municipality files multiple police reports against Nordic Waste company

Randers Municipality has several times reported Nordic Waste to the police for violating environmental protection laws. Randers Municipality has once again reported the company Nordic Waste for violating several sections of the environmental protection laws. The municipality announced this in a press release. Jesper Kaas Schmidt, municipal director, cannot elaborate on the content of the police report. – Unfortunately, I am not able to answer specific questions about what the reports specifically concern. We are not allowed to, he says in the statement. – But I can say that if we find further conditions requiring a police report, we will do so, he says. This is not the first time the municipality has reported Nordic Waste, which plays a central role in a case involving an environmentally hazardous landslide near Randers. In March, the company was reported for violating both the nature protection law and the environmental protection law. The case has been ongoing since December last year, when the landslide became publicly known. Authorities have since been working to limit the damage and the risk of environmental pollution. In December, Nordic Waste handed over the cleanup to Randers Municipality, which has estimated that the cleanup work could cost up to 663 million Danish kroner. The responsibility and payment for the landslide are still a controversial issue. Boris Frederiksen, a partner at the law firm Kammeradvokaten and the trustee in the bankruptcy estate of Nordic Waste, is currently investigating whether claims can be brought against the former management and ownership group. This means that thousands of documents need to be reviewed. The trustee is investigating, among other things, whether there is a basis to go after the millions that the founders have taken out as dividends. The ownership group has paid out a total of 96.3 million kroner in dividends from both Nordic Waste and the sister company DSH Recycling from 2018 to 2023, according to former accounts disclosed by Radio4.
