A new offloading pad has been installed at Walleys Landfill
Our non-haz landfill site in Staffordshire operates to the highest standards and we’re constantly innovating and improving. Our latest engineering innovation includes a brand new 700m2 offloading pad at Walleys Landfill. It has been developed for trucks, vans, trade waste and other vehicles to tip onto a specially engineered platform.
This means customers do not need to drive onto the landfill to offload waste, but can drive straight from the weighbridge onto a concreted platform – benefiting customers through a shorter journey, being more efficient, and quicker unloading times. This will also ensure a quicker turn around time for vehicles which will reduce waiting times for trucks entering the landfill.
The offloading bay is secured with push-walls, where the waste can be safely held before being transported by Red’s vehicles into the appropriate landfill cell.
Our landfill is highly engineered – at the site there is a leachate treatment plant as well as as an energy generation facility. In 2019, the site generated over 14,000mwhs of electricity, enough to power over 5,000 homes.
New doorstep collection service launched
We have launched a new doorstep collection service for our landfill. We will come and collect waste from customers using walking floor vehicles, which means customers save time and cost of using their own transport. This is an exciting new service and we have already seen slots filling up as customers take advantage of this offer.
