Work has started on Northland Waste’s new undercover waste transfer station at the former Wyatt Haulage & Landscape Supplies site at 183 Sandspit Road, near Warkworth.
Managing director Ray Lambert says earthworks are currently being carried out, building consent has been granted and the access road will be sealed in the next few months. He hopes the new facility, which will deal with domestic, commercial and industrial waste, cleanfill material, green waste and recyclables, will be open by the middle of this year.
“We are confident the facility will not only reduce refuse and recycling disposal costs for the community, but also increase the amount of material that is diverted from landfill,” he says.
Wyatts has relocated to 371 Woodcocks Road.
