Go-ahead for waste transfer station

Published: Wednesday, 2nd July 2014

Doncaster Council’s planning committee has approved plans for a new Waste Transfer Station (WTS) at Kirk Sandall Industrial Estate, subject to confirmation by the Secretary of State.

The WTS will reduce the need for a large number of refuse collection vehicles and their crews repeatedly having to travel to and from Manvers to dispose of waste. Instead, waste will be taken to the WTS at Kirk Sandall before being loaded into articulated vehicles which can carry a load the equivalent of up to four refuse collection vehicles.

The design and operation of the proposed WTS has been carefully considered to minimise the impact of the facility on neighbouring communities.
