start content

This consultation closed on 28 November 2023.

Conwy County Borough Council intends to submit a planning application for a Waste Transfer Station at Ffordd Maelgwyn, Llandudno Junction.  As part of this, we are running a pre-application consultation from 31 October to 28 November 2023 to understand your views on the development proposals.

Current situation

The Council currently operates a Materials Recycling Facility on Bron-y-Nant Road, Mochdre.  The site stores different kinds of waste, such as from litter bins, street sweepings and fly tipped waste, and then transfers them for treatment, processing or disposal.

Since 2019, the County’s non-recyclable waste has been treated at Parc Adfer, the new regional Energy from Waste plant on Deeside.  This requires household and trade waste collections to be tipped off at a private waste transfer station and put into larger loads to transfer to Deeside.  Before 2019, refuse collection vehicles delivered waste directly to Llanddulas landfill and did not need a waste transfer station.

We are proposing a new waste transfer station to combine the Mochdre Materials Recycling Facility and a non-recyclable waste transfer facility.

What are the proposals?

Modern waste transfer stations are clean operations.  The environmental compliance standards for new sites require that anywhere that waste is deposited, stored, processed or treated needs to be under cover.  The waste transfer station would resemble low impact commercial storage type facilities as everywhere that waste is handled would be under cover.

The proposals we are consulting on include a depot building, out-buildings and site offices, with car parking spaces and weighbridges.

Merging the two operations into in a central location will maintain efficiency and minimise travel time for waste, street cleansing, parks and highways vehicles.  Existing Materials Recycling Facility operational staff, plant and management will operate the new site.
