Civil Sanctions to Enforce Hazardous Waste

 

Crackdown on Waste Crime – Environment Agency launch taskforce

 

Whitemoss opens Interceptor Waste Treatment Plant facility

 

Soil Screening Plant up and running

On 21st May 2015 the Secretary of State, having carefully considered the Planning Inspector's Report together with the representations made known to him in respect of the Application, gave his approval for the extension of Whitemoss Landfill.

 

The hazardous wastes and packaging industries will be the first to feel the effect of the Environment Agency’s new powers using the Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008.

 

The Environment Agency has launched a taskforce to crackdown on illegal waste sites. Over the next two years it will spend £5 million to fund the team, which will include former police detectives.

 

The plant was granted a permit by the Environment Agency in August 2010 and the treatment plant can now take Oil/Water Separator contents and has a throughput of 80 tonnes per day.

 

In order to reduce the volume of waste that goes to landfill here at Whitemoss we are identifying further ways of treating wastes and to this end we have designed and built a soil screening and blending plant.
