Merseyside planning permission for recycling site

Liverpool City Council has awarded Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority planning permission for a new £20 million recycling park.

The waste disposal body will now develop its existing site on Stonebridge Lane in Gilmoss by adding a materials recycling facility and a visitor and education centre.

MWDA chairman Cllr Kevin Cluskey said: This facility is vital to the future success of council recycling services and waste disposal on Merseyside because it will enable us to process large quantities of recyclable waste and cut our very expensive reliance on landfill.

The facility is expected to create 100 jobs and the MRF will process mixed dry recyclable materials including paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, cans and glass.

It will be operated by a new contractor which MWDA will announce shortly and is expected to be opened in 2010.
