Modern landfill sites are designed and operated to minimise any potential impact on both the environment and local communities. As a leading UK waste management company, FCC Environment is committed to fulfilling these responsibilities and has a rigorous environmental monitoring programme.
Operations at Welbeck are monitored daily to ensure that possible nuisances such as noise, dust and litter are minimised. The site is regularly inspected by the Environment Agency, including unannounced visits, to ensure that all waste is handled and disposed of safely. Environmental health officers employed by Wakefield Council also regularly review the operation of the site and will investigate any concerns raised by local residents.
