Lagan Construction Group has recently completed works at the £3.4 million Waste Transfer Station (WTS) in Poole. The 12 month contract comprised of the redevelopment of the Existing Waste Transfer Station in Poole.
Poole’s brand new Waste Transfer Station and Household Waste Recycling Centre opened to residents on Monday 26th November 2013
After transferring to a temporary site at Hatch Pond while the Nuffield Road centre was revamped, the facility was completely rebuilt,
It is a drive-on, split-level site where residents will be able to queue off the road, which has previously caused problems to traffic on the Nuffield Industrial Estate.
Residents will drive through the one-way system, drop larger items such as white goods at the end of the site and drive up a ramp to reverse into one of 15 bays to dump items in skips, separated into garden waste, wood and timber, cardboard and paper, landfill and scrap metal.
Everything the town’s residents throw into bins – 95,000 tonnes a year – is collected and taken to the undercover waste transfer station in the centre where there are bays for garden waste, recycling and landfill waste.
This will be cleared daily but the transfer station shed is large enough to store three day’s worth, if necessary, such as at times when landfill sites are closed due to high winds.
