Blaydon Quarry Landfill Permit Transfer Application
In April this year we were informed that the site had been taken over by a new company – Recyclogical Ltd. The company was formed in November 2016 and its registered office is a residential address in Leamington Spa. According to land registry details Recyclogical is now the landowner.
An application was then made to transfer the Environmental Permit from the present operator (Octagon Green Solutions Ltd) to Recyclogical.
This application has been assessed by our national permitting service with input from staff locally. This assessment has now been completed and we have decided that the permit transfer application be refused. This is because we did not have confidence that permit compliance could be achieved.
In view of the transfer refusal, Octagon Green Solutions Ltd remains the legal operator of the landfill site and is responsible for permit compliance.
