The Proposals

In February 2009 Viridor lodged a planning appeal to te Scottish Ministers in respect of its proposals for a £7 million waste transfer station to be built at the former Freightliner terminal at Sir Harry Lauder Road, Portobello.

The proposed facility will be used to helping in moving 300,000 tonnes a year of residual waste from Edinburgh and the surrounding area to its final disposal point at Oxwellmains, near Dunbar.  Importantly, it would reduce the amount of waste travelling by road

Residual waste is that part of the municipal waste stream which is left after the more valuable materials, such as metals, paper and board, certain plastics, and organic wastes have been removed for recycling or composting.

The facility would serve existing waste management contracts operated by Viridor.
