Waste transfer station in March, Cambridgeshire

You have until midnight on Friday (February 19) to have your say on the proposed West Suffolk Operational Hub.

There is still time to send your views on whether a partnership of Forest Heath District, St Edmundsbury Borough and Suffolk County Councils should build a shared facility to deal with waste from West Suffolk’s households and, if so, where it should be located.

The partner councils are working on a project that could bring together a waste depot for vehicle storage and maintenance to replace the one in Olding Road, Bury St Edmunds; offices for waste management teams; a waste transfer station where household recycling and waste collections are consolidated before being sent to the Materials Recycling Facility or the Energy from Waste facility at Great Blakenham and a Household Waste Recycling Centre for public use to replace the one at Rougham Hill, Bury.

They say it would increase efficiency, save money and future-proof waste management.
