The Environment Agency is in discussion with the major waste companies in England and Wales to seek to agree a way forward in the use of separate landfill cells as a key part of the solution for hazardous waste, following the co-disposal ban in July.228W
operators' decisions. All such sites are merchant landfill sites. Two applications have been refused, two have been granted and one application has been withdrawn.
Final figures for the estimated capacities are not yet available as not all application contained sufficient detail for this to be assessed. The two permitted sites have an annual capacity of 57,500 tonnes.
The following table indicates the known location and operator for each of the 38 sites for which applications have been received and the status of each application.
