Preston, Lancashire (PRWEB) March 26, 2008
Woodford Environmental, have recently been granted, for a limited period, exclusive rights for direct landfilling of non-WAC compliant hazardous waste (parameter: TOC less than or equal to 47%) at Teesport No.3 Landfill.
This is in addition to the company's existing rights for the disposal of WAC compliant hazardous materials.
The former ICI site, three miles east of Middlesbrough with excellent rail, road and sea links, is now owned by Impetus Remediation Ltd and is the only merchant landfill in the country able to accept hazardous waste with elevated WAC limits.
Woodford Environmental is part of Woodford Global, a fast-growing, dynamic company with a diverse portfolio of brands from the sports, lifestyle and leisure industries. Visit http://www.woodfordgroup.com for more information.
Dr. Henry Clemmey, Group Managing Director of Woodford Global, said: "One of the key attributes of the Teesport site is their ability to accept non-WAC compliant hazardous waste for direct landfilling. This clearly provides a limited window of opportunity for the speedy and economic remediation of problematic sites that may not otherwise be viable.
"The area also benefits from excellent transport links via rail, road and sea which makes the site an attractive and competitive waste management proposition," he continued.
