Sandwell gets council's permission for waste recycling project
(31/08/2010 11:27:42)

Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council's proposal to develop a 200,000 tonne-a-year capacity waste recycling has received planning permission from council planning officials on 18th February. The deal is a part of Sandwell's £1 billion waste management project.

The Eco Park development is Sandwell's second waste management project after its first agreement that it secured July,2008 to send up to 60,000 tonnes of waste a year to Staffordshire County Council. The council is in high spirits after receiving the deal and is planning to build the park in partnership and its procurement process for the contract commenced in August, 2008.

Following this decision, Mahboob Hussain, the council's Cabinet Member, said: "This is a major step for the council's Waste Improvement Plan. However, still, we do not know what exactly will be at the Eco Park because we will have to contract with a specialist partner to establish and run the centre. We will submit a further planning application for getting detailed permission. Meanwhile, we'll keep people informed of the progress," he added.

In 2008, the council announced that five companies were short listed and they are showing a great interest about the deal. The companies bidding for the deal are: Biffa, waste management firm, Focsa, waste company with head quarters in Spain and sister company to WRG, Serco, based in Hampshire, and Veolia Environmental Services, waste management firm.
