The Environment Agency is seeking the views of people and businesses on an environmental permit application for a non hazardous waste incinerator at Northyard, Devonport, Plymouth.
The South West Devon Waste Partnership has decided that MVV Umwelt will be its preferred bidder to provide a solution to treat the region’s residual waste.
‘Green is good for business’ Viridor chief executive Colin Drummond told thisiswesternmorningnews. The waste management, recycling and renewable energy company has been criticised for its plans for an incinerator in Ivybridge, but it has also signed Europe’s largest waste renewable contract for a PFI scheme in Greater Manchester – the total revenue over the 25 year contract is reported to be £3 billion.
Plymouth City Council claims it is not trying to gag waste incinerator pressure group STIFLE, even though the group cannot be part of the council’s next formal committee meeting.
