Waste transfer station proposals

MEMBERS of the public have just days to submit their views on proposals for a waste transfer station in Shireoaks which could see up to 63 lorry loads a day.

The public consultation period for the recycling development on Shireoaks Road is due to finish on Monday 14th February.

Applicant Veolia Environmental Services say the site is expected to handle a total of 16,348 loads of waste per year.

Waste collected by Bassetlaw Council lorries will be delivered to the station to be assessed for the most appropriate disposal, treatment or re-use.

Veolia regional communications manager Kevin Parker said: “The Shireoaks Road transfer station is being developed as part of our waste Private Finance Initiative contract with Notts County Council.”

“It will help to achieve a more environmentally sustainable system of waste management, and will play an important intermediate role between the collection and final recycling or disposal of waste”.
