Greenwaste site proposed for Herefordshire

Severn Waste Services has proposed a 12,000 tonnes a year open windrow greenwaste composting facility for Herefordshire.

If planning permission is granted the facility planned for Upper House Farm, Moreton-on-Lugg, north of Hereford will compost garden waste deposited at household waste sites that Severn Waste manages for Herefordshire and Worcestershire councils.

Severn Waste marketing director Ian Barber said: Herefordshire residents took around 6,500 tonnes of garden waste to household waste sites last year and this amount is set to grow.

The material is currently composted at our site near Pershore in Worcestershire or at third party sites. The new site at Upper House Farm will give Herefordshire its own composting facility, so cutting down on waste tonne-miles and providing a local source of high quality, peat free soil conditioner.
