A planning application has been submitted to the Council for a recycling and residual waste transfer facility at the planned Bio Park site near Scorrier.
The proposal, from Cory Environmental, would allow the development of an integrated waste management facility helping businesses in Cornwall to recycle more.
A public consultation event is being held on Tuesday, November 8 at the Penventon Park Hotel in Redruth (1pm-8pm) where local residents can find out more about the proposals.
Nigel Carr, general manager for Cory Environmental Municipal Services, said: “Our proposals…will help Cornish businesses to improve recycling levels and divert more waste from landfill. The proposals include a materials recycling facility and waste transfer and processing building.”
The plans, says Cory Environmental, fit within the agreed development framework for the Bio Park site and will deliver a facility that “builds on years of public consultation”.
It claims development would be a major financial investment in the area, creating new jobs at both the construction stage and in the operation of the facility.
Carr added: “Cory has been operating in Cornwall since 1990 and this significant investment in the area is part of Cory’s plans to provide key waste management solutions to businesses across the county.”
