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

In 2013 we applied for Development Consent for the construction of new landfill void to the west of the current hazardous waste landfill site. The application was accepted for examination on 17 January 2014. The application, which has been consulted upon widely, will be the subject of examination in 2014.

 

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.
