Welcome to Whitemoss Landfill

Whitemoss is an important part of the UK’s hazardous waste management infrastructure.

Located less than 500 metres from junction 4 of the M58 motorway Whitemoss has, for more than twenty years, been an important facility for disposal of residues from recycling activities and the remediation of contaminated land.

Where hazardous wastes cannot be recycled then those residual wastes need to be disposed of in accordance with best engineering practise to mitigate their environmental impact.

In May 2015 the Secretary of State granted development consent for the construction of a new landfill void at Whitemoss which will provide capacity for a further twenty years.

Local Community Support

The Whitemoss Community Fund provides grants of between £5,000 and £20,000 to fund community and environmental projects located in the West Lancashire Borough Council area and that are within 5 miles of the Whitemoss landfill site in Skelmersdale.
