Whitemoss is an important part of the UK’s hazardous waste management infrastructure.
Located less than 500 metres from junction 4 of the M58 motorway Whitemoss has, for more than twenty five years, been an important facility for disposal of residues from recycling activities and the remediation of contaminated land.
Where hazardous wastes cannot be recycled then those residual wastes need to be disposed of in accordance with best engineering practice to mitigate their environmental impact.
Any wastes received at the site must be pre-treated and meet stringent waste acceptance criteria before they can be accepted. The majority of wastes that we accept are contaminated soils allowing remediation of brownfield sites, residues from recycling such as filter cakes and ash from burning of wood and paper in biomass plants.
Veolia plc acquired Whitemoss Landfill in January 2019. Veolia is the UK’s leading resource management company which provides, among others, a wide range of specialist hazardous waste collection, advanced treatment, recycling and recovery services.
