Information session about Kirby Misperton waste plant
10:52am Wednesday 5th September 2012 in News
A NEW development aimed at giving people more help and encouragement to go green has been unveiled by North Yorkshire County Council.
The proposal is for a new waste transfer station at Tofts Lane, Kirby Misperton, which will allow waste to be “bulked up” before being transported to recycling, treatment and disposal facilities. It is designed to come into operation when the landfill site at Knapton closes in 2015.
County Councillor Chris Metcalfe, executive member for waste management, said: “We are committed to doing all we can to encourage people to recycle as much of their waste as possible.”
“This project will help people make the most of recycling opportunities. As we all know, the more we can do to avoid burying our waste in holes in the ground, the better both financially and environmentally.”
A drop-in session for the waste transfer station proposal will be held at Kirby Misperton Village Hall on Friday, September 14, at 6pm.
