Doncaster Council is urging the public to have their say over a new transfer station which is set to change how rubbish, green waste and recycling is moved across the borough.

The local authority is proposing a new site in Kirk Sandall where waste will be dropped off for a short time before being moved off to another location for processing.

Recyclable material will also be stored there temporarily before going to its end destination for processing.

The project is at its early stages and the local authority wants to continue comprehensive consultations with the public about the proposals and is hosting several drop-in events in the Kirk Sandall Edenthorpe area.

Coun Christine Mills, Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste, said: “This new Waste Transfer Station will improve the efficiency of waste collection and transportation in the borough – potentially saving thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money.”

Two further consultation meetings will take place on Tuesday (January 7) at the Church Balk Centre, Edenthorpe at 3pm and on Wednesday (January 8) at the Assembly Halls Centre at 3.30pm.
