Managing Gully and Road Sweeping Waste Plastics Collection Survey
We were commissioned by The North East Improvement and Efficiency Partnership to identify gully waste treatment options best suited to Local Authorities in the North East of England
Gully waste and street sweepings can account for a considerable amount of Local Authority waste. In the North East of England this type of waste was being handled in a variety of different ways at a considerable cost (principally landfill).
With a reduction of sites available in the region for the disposal of liquid forms of gully waste, and subsequent impact in costs, it was essential to identify new cost effective treatment and disposal options.
The project enabled Local Authorities in the North East to address the environmental and legal issues of dealing with this type of material and make informed decisions on the various options available to them within the region and the new ways of dealing with gully waste being developed in the industry.
