Cory submits plans for C&I recycling plant in Cornwall

Cory Environmental has submitted a planning application to Cornwall Council for a recycling and residual waste transfer facility at the planned Bio Park site near Scorrier, Redruth.

The proposal would allow the development of an integrated waste management facility for commercial waste. The development will create a bespoke waste management facility for Cory in a central location in the county.

The proposals include a materials recycling facility (MRF) with the capacity to sort up to 35,000 tonnes of co-mingled recyclables from local businesses each year, including paper, cardboard, steel and aluminium cans and plastic bottles.

An adjacent bulk transfer facility will have a capacity of 115,000 tonnes per year and will be used for the temporary storage and transfer of residual waste.

Cory Environmental Municipal Services’ general manager, Nigel Carr, said: “Cory has developed the plans to provide a much needed commercial and industrial waste facility for businesses in Cornwall. Environmentally beneficial features of the proposals include the generation of electricity with solar photovoltaic roof panels.”
