New hazardous waste transfer station under development in Merseyside

Aug 31 2012

A new hazardous waste transfer station has started to be developed in Prescot, Merseyside, which will be capable of processing 69,000 tonnes of waste a year once completed.

German-based waste and recycling firm Remondis are to build the new facility, which will be located at the site of a former Pirelli Cables & Components plant. The plant will replace Redmondis UK’s current facility in Blackrod, Bolton which the company says it has ‘outgrown’.

Spring 2013 has been earmarked as a completion date for the facility, when the company will move their services over from the current base in Bolton. Once up and running, Redmondis hope to provide 70 jobs to people in the region.

The purpose of the new facility is to prepare waste for export for further treatment at Remondis facilities across the continent. There are over 500 waste management facilities owned by the company across Europe and Australia, and their new addition in Merseyside will be the largest indoor waste management facility in the region.

David Baybut, commercial property partner at Stephensons, said: "Remondis is part of one of the largest organisations in the world dealing with the waste management and the recycling industry. This new site will make use of the best available technology in the waste management sector.

"There were various barriers to securing ownership of the site, which included satisfying conditions in relation to planning and environmental licenses, site assembly, easements, release of restrictive covenants and varying existing property rights, all of which have now been overcome."

A spokesman from Remondis said that the firm is looking to increase its presence in the UK. The project in Merseyside runs alongside a similar bid which has been pitched in Central Bedfordshire with organics recycling specialist New Earth Solutions. One other company is thought to be competing for the work.
