We have taken the decision to voluntarily curtail landfill operations at Walleys Quarry with effect from Saturday March 13th 2021. This will enable us to accelerate the programme of extensive capping work planned for the facility, along with other infrastructural developments.
Soil, clays, filter cakes and engineering materials will continue to be brought to site to support the ongoing works. We will continue to extract gas and manage site rain water.
Nigel Bowen, Red Industries Chief Executive, said : “The voluntary curtailment of the majority of waste disposal activities is in response to community concerns and we will assess the impact of the changes made. We continue to work with the Environment Agency and relevant regulators throughout this process. Our customers have been contacted to enable them to make alternative arrangements for the disposal of their waste and we thank them for their patience and support.”
