Knowsley Councillors Approve SITA UK's Waste Plans

Plans could remove a half million tonnes of waste from Merseyside each year.

Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority's (MRWA) Resource Recovery Contract is a contract aimed at development of facilities that will create energy from residual waste.

There are two applicants for the contract, Covanta Energy and SITA UK Ltd.

Plans proposed to Knowsley residents in July 2011 and since submitted to Knowsley Council for approval of a rail loading transfer station located on a site in Woodward Road Knowsley Industrial Park, Kirkby, have according to the latest news from SITA UK as reported by - Waste Management World have been approved by Knowsley councillors.

SITA UK's plans for a rail loading transfer station at Knowsley Industrial Park, Kirkby, have been approved by Knowsley councillors. According to the company, the proposed facility would enable up to 500,000 tonnes of residual waste bulked up and transported to a waste to energy facility in Teeside by rail each year, as well as creating 25 permanent jobs.


SITA UK says: The new facility could take in up to 500,000 tonnes of residual (non-recycled) household waste. This would be delivered to the enclosed facility on lorries and would then be bulked up and transported in sealed containers on a train to Teeside in North East England. In Teeside, the waste would be burned in an energy-from-waste facility to produce electricity.
