Extended operating hours proposed for EnviroSort
The company has applied to Worcestershire County Council for permission to extend the hours of operation and the hours allowed for maintenance at the EnviroSort Comingled Materials Reclamation facility at Norton.
The extended operating hours – to 11.00 pm on weekdays and to 5.00 pm on Saturdays will provide more availability and flexibility to the operation of the plant. In addition the proposal to allow low-key maintenance activities at the site around the clock, will enable this work to be carried out at periods when the plant is not operational.
The submission to the council is in the form of an application to vary Conditions 35 and 36 of the planning permission granted in 2007. The submission also includes an application to vary Condition 8 which relates to the entry to the site by District Council collection vehicles carrying both waste and recyclable materials.
