Calderdale cabinet to discuss plans for Bradford waste plant
10:00am Saturday 9th February 2013 in News
Plans to invest in a plant to treat all the waste from Bradford and Calderdale will be considered on Monday.
Calderdale Council’s cabinet will consider a report which recommends it spends £9 million on the waste management centre to be constructed at Bowling Back Lane, Bradford.
The new plant, planned to be fully operational by 2016, is designed to generate energy from waste after extracting valuable materials for recycling.
The plant will process up to 44,000 tonnes of waste from Calderdale a year. The report explains that councillors can save £200,000 a year for the borough by taking a stake in the new facility.
Calderdale Council’s cabinet member for economy and environment, Councillor Barry Collins, said: “We know that the new plant will bring us lots of advantages.”
