Veolia selects FoodCycle as charity partner
Environmental services company Veolia has selected FoodCycle as its charity partner.
The charity, which provides meals for vulnerable people from surplus food, was chosen by the company due to its complementary objectives that are aligned with the group’s strategy of saving resources.
Third EA visit to Boston vehicle dismantlers
The Environment Agency (EA), with officers from Lincolnshire County Council and Boston Borough Council, has carried out a third visit to sites of illegal vehicle dismantlers in Boston, giving operators final warnings and deadlines to comply.
Others were invited to attend interviews under caution.
The EA made its first visit to the sites in March (pictured) before following up in June.
Permit refused for landfill site
An application for an environmental permit for a landfill site in Flintshire has been refused, due to the potential odour problems that could affect the local area.
Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has decided that the application for a non-hazardous waste landfill at Parry’s Quarry proposed an inadequate gas management system.
NRW had advised the operator, RJS Engineering, that its proposal was not in line with best practice and that there were more effective solutions to control landfill gas releases from the site.
EA calling for waste crime reporting
In a bid to combat waste crime, the EA has partnered with independent charity Crimestoppers to provide an anonymous way for industry and the public to report waste crime.
It is urging people to look out for the signs of illegal waste sites and report suspicious activity.
To report call 0800 555 111 or information can be provided online.
Suez environnement rebrands
Suez environnement has shortened its name to Suez, after it was approved by the group’s board of directors.
The business unit formerly known as Sita is now the recycling and recovery UK division of Suez.
