Transcript of Waste Disposal

Phase one, during consultation:
Regular updates in Harpshire newspaper
Monthly meetings for stakeholders
Postal survey
Why this has to be done

Operational within a year
Electricity produced can be sold

Around £30m capital cost
Still requires waste to landfill
Believed to emit carcinogenic and teratogenic toxins
Usually run on fixed-tonnage contracts
Case Study: Incinerator in Stoke
Waste Disposal Facility in Raley Valley

Why this has to be done
Poor agricultural
Land raising site
Nature Reserve
Preserving Nature
Local Residents and Businesses
Leachate Leakage
Transplanting Shepherd's Sporran and Brazen Ragwort

Biodiversity offsetting

Plant trees around the site

Perimeter fencing
Grassland and wooded nature reserve

Use the technique of coppicing

Transplant Shepherd's Sporran and Brazen Ragwort

Involve local community
Case study
Our Proposal
Land Raising Site
Quickest (we only have 12 months)
Use the technique of baling
Reduces transportation costs - fewer lorries
Reduces dust and odours
Other options:
Dump - environmentally unfriendly
Landfill (excavation) - expensive and environmentally destructive
Three Options:
Incineration - £32/tonne
Landfill (current, and new sites) - £24/tonne
Overview of problem
What concerns you?
Stakeholder Consultation Strategy

• Methane emissions

• Landfill strategies – Methane collection and electricity generation.

Existing landfill site closes in one year

Willingsborough, Harpshire, has a population of 250,000 requiring domestic waste removal

100,000 tonnes of waste per annum estimated
Always an issue with landfill sites

This will be mitigated by:
- Fence perimeter
- Standard vermin control practices
Measures taken to accommodate all stakeholders

We have proposed solutions, but we are open to suggestions

Work will only occur between 9am and 5pm

Maximum noise that can be heard (75 decibels, same as a small vacuum cleaner)

Deliveries restricted to non-busy periods
Phase two, during construction:
Continue monthly meetings and newspaper updates
Phase three, during operation:
Biannual meetings
Phase four, during decommission:
Workshops for locals to have input in the nature reserve
Contact details
Site 20 miles from Willingsborough
Combination of landfill and recycling
Methane collection methods and generation of electricity on site
Leachate control and treatment
After use nature reserve






Decision Triangle

Good for the environment and natural resources
Reduces waste to landfill
Reduces emission of greenhouse gases

Potentially costly
Scheme estimated to take 3/4 years to implement

Current landfill site (40 miles away)
Passes through Farrington

Newly proposed landfill site (20 miles away)
In an area of natural outstanding beauty
Considered best choice from 23 sites
Planning authority 'sympathetic' to the situation


Can handle large volumes of waste
Can be covered after use

Odours and smells, can be mitigated
Transportation costs involved

Combination of landfill and recycling

New site to be used (20 miles away)
Recycling scheme to be introduced at a later date
Landfill lifetime increased

Common Causes: Under-designed, poorly installed and maintained

Measures Taken:

Double Liners and Capping

Leachate Collection
& Monitoring System

Left: River Arun. Right: Connonbridge landfill site leakage

• Landfill Odour

• Landfill Odour control

Road Safety
There will be no damage
caused by vibration
2mm/s is much less
than 15mm/s which
causes cosmetic

Some barriers will be set up
Plant more trees along the road

A speed limit will be imposed on lorries passing through the village
Road side railings will be installed for pedestrian safety

Thurrock Thameside Nature Park
Mucking Landfill Site which has been transformed into a wildlife habitat and public park

Has won multiple conservation awards

120 acres (much larger than our proposal)
Key Dates

Construction of Landfill: 1st July 2015 - 1st January 2016
Landfill in use: 1st January 2016 - 1st January 2036
Nature Reserve construction: 1st July 2036
Open to public: 1st January 2037

Recycling Scheme Implemented: 1st January 2017
