Rhondda Cynon Taf Bryn Pica Landfill
Posted by Lewis on the 7th September 2008
A report in the South Wales Echo about landfill reports Bryn Pica has 20 years left for tipping.
The question I ask is why do Rhondda Cynon Taf Council who own Bryn Pica allow waste from all over Wales to be deposited in Cynon Valley?
Landfill sites are in short supply therefore why encourage outside contractors to use Cynon Valley as a dumping ground.
Siteserv a waste contractor registered in Coity Bridgend an area well outside Cynon Valley therefore why is this waste carrier dumping at Bryn Pica, Parle Skip Hire run over 30 vehicles conveying waste into Cynon Valley daily.
The redundant Tower Colliery site may be turned into another waste outlet as much as £60 million is being put into the project by EnviroParks processing of over 250,000 tonnes of non-hazardous waste a year. Initially, though, an anaerobic digestion plant will be designed to handle 50,000 tonnes of organic wastes a year, with the potential for a 100% expansion.
Cynon Valley would be the major dumping ground for South Wales, with major increase in traffic flows.
