Title:Planning Committee gives its support for Waste Transfer Station

A proposed new Waste Transfer Station has today (24 June) been considered by Doncaster Council’s Planning Committee with the Committee resolving to grant planning permission, subject to referral of the application to the Secretary of State.

The Waste Transfer Station (WTS) forms an important part in the development of the ‘Waste Partnership’ with Barnsley and Rotherham Councils that will help to reduce household waste going to landfill in the three towns by up to 98.9%.

The WTS site, located at Kirk Sandall Industrial Estate, provides a money-saving and environmental solution for transporting Doncaster’s waste to the BDR waste treatment facility, currently being built in Manvers. The Waste Transfer Station will reduce the need for a large number of refuse collection vehicles, and their crews, repeatedly having to travel to and from Manvers to dispose of waste, disrupting services, costing extra money and negatively impacting on the environment.

Instead, waste will be taken to the WTS at Kirk Sandall before being loaded into articulated vehicles, which can carry a load the equivalent of to up to four refuse collection vehicles and require only one driver, to take it to the BDR Facility at Manvers. When at the BDR Facility, the waste will be processed into fuel for burning at Ferrybridge Power Station – rather than being sent to landfill.

Cabinet member for Environment and Waste, Councillor Christine Mills, said: ‘This Waste Transfer Station is an important project for Doncaster, and is a necessary step in the development of our waste partnership with Barnsley and Rotherham. Building the Transfer Station on this industrial site will provide an economically and environmentally beneficial solution to the problem of managing Doncaster’s waste.’

The scheme will deliver long term financial savings for Doncaster Council and also help to reduce the carbon footprint of Doncaster’s waste collection services, where currently the equivalent of one tonne of waste per household is created, with much of it ending up in landfill sites.

The design and operation of the proposed new Waste Transfer Station has been carefully considered to minimise the impact of the facility on neighbouring communities. Measures will include an odour-neutralising system, and features to reduce noise coming from the site. Careful planning of vehicle movements to ensure they take place, where possible, during off-peak hours will also minimise the traffic impact.
