The Bank of Irelandappointed David Carson as Receiver over Greenstar Holdings (those parts ofthe Greenstar Group not actively involved in landfïll operations). TheBallynagran landfïll is now being operated by Greenstar South East Limited. Itshould be noted that Greenstar South East is not the licensed operator of theLandfill - the licence is issued to Greenstar Holdings Ltd. The EPA has issued proceedings in the High Court against Greenstar HoldingsLtd as Licensee of the landfill, Greenstar Ltd, Greenstar North East Ltd,Greenstar South East Ltd, Greenstar Connaught Ltd, KTK Landfill Ltd, Bank ofIreland and David Carson as receiver. This action seeks to recover monieswhich Greenstar was required to keep for purposes of closure, remediation,restoration and aftercare, and which, in breach of that requirement, it dissipated.Approximately €12 million of those monies is now in the hands of Bank ofIreland, and the Agency is seeking to recover it. The Agency is also seekingpayment from Bank of Ireland of €6 million on foot of guarantees which itprovided to ensure payment of Greenstars liabilities.
