SEPA considers applications for hazwaste separate cells

Eight applications to operate separate cells for stabilised, non-reactive hazardous waste at ordinary landfills are being considered by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.

The eight sites include three landfills operated by Shanks, which has recently put its landfill business up for sale. The other five sites are run by Viridor, Waste Recycling Group, I&H Brown, Binn Landfill (Glenfarg) and Patersons of Greenoakhill.

Two of the sites plan to accept asbestos only. SEPA, like the Environment Agency, is in discussions with operators over the exact type of hazardous wastes that each site would be able to take.

As in Wales, there have been no applications for dedicated hazardous waste landfills.
