The waste hierarchy forms an important strategy for our management of waste and we aim to divert waste from landfill where possible through preparation for re-use, recycling and recovery. However, landfill remains an important waste disposal method and we are pleased to be able to include Walleys Landfill site in our waste management services portfolio.
As of 7th November 2016, RED Industries took over the operation of Walleys Quarry Landfill in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire. The landfill is easily accessible from the Midlands and is only 3.9miles from junction 15 of the M6 (approx 9 mins). The site accepts non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste.
A number of improvements and technological advancements have been made to the landfill over the past couple of years and the site has been used as an example of ‘Best Practice’. There is a power generation plant on site, which produces electricity by converting methane gas into energy – the plant generates enough electricity to power around 4,500 homes. There is also a leachate treatment facility on site.
Walleys Quarry Landfill is operated to the highest standards and complies with all legal and governmental policies and regulations. Our team of experts carefully manage and monitor the site through a set of tight controls and procedures. We work to minimise any impact on the environment now and for the future of the site.
