Waste Transfer Station For Letterloan?

1 Mins read

Councillors have agreed to approve scoping and feasibility studies for a new waste transfer site at Letterloan. The site is based at an abandoned quarry outside Coleraine.

The move follows as Craigahulliar landfill site has an expected remaining life span of circa 4 years at current infill rates.

A report issued to councillors last week said ‘Upon closure of the landfill site, waste previously being landfilled here will be bulked up and temporarily stored at a waste transfer station for onward transport to a materials recovery facility (MRF).

Council is currently procuring a new residual (black bin) waste contract. It is expected that this contract will be in excess of 5 years duration. Council must
indicate in the contract the location(s) of waste transfer station(s) to be utilised.’

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council currently operate a green waste composting facility at Letterloan Road in Macosquin.
