Oxfordshire County Council’s planning committee has approved (2 December 2013) the proposed development of a waste transfer station by FCC Environment within the existing consented MRF at its site in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire.
This transfer station will bulk up municipal waste collected in South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse district councils for onward transport to the Ardley EfW in the north of the county.
An FCC Environment spokesperson said: “We are naturally very pleased that the Council’s Planning Committee has approved our proposal to use the existing recycling centre at Sutton Courtenay to bulk up and transfer waste to the Ardley Energy from Waste plant.
“This decision will ensure residents’ waste collected in South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse district council areas will be diverted from landfill and used in the generation of energy. The overall impact will be to reduce the number of road miles used to transport material within the County and therefore to provide a service which is as economically and environmentally sustainable as possible.”
