Notes: In January 2020 it was reported that the Binn Group intended to apply for to vary the proposal to increase the capacity to nearly 85,000 tonnes per annum, and that they were hoping the facility would be operational by 2023 [Source]. Sita gained planning permission for a gasification-type incinerator at the site in October 2011 (10/01767/FLM) but has yet to obtain an environmental permit. Supposedly "most of the material processed will be from households, with a small amount of business waste". Sita obtained planning permission for a mass-burn incinerator of the same capacity at the site in 2007 but reportedly had a change of heart regarding the type of incineration [Source].
