Metal Recycling Project Reducing Waste Backlog

The landing craft at Porthmellon beach yesterday

The Council says work to reduce the size of the Moorwell rubbish mound is going well.

A landing craft has been working at Porthmellon beach since Sunday, transporting scrap metal from the Moorwell recycling depot to the mainland for recycling.

The vessel is owned by local man, Diccon Rogers, whose company Keynvor Morlift were successful in securing a contract as part of the Council’s waste management strategy.

Council Spokesman, George Pearson, said that the current work has already made significant inroads into the volume of scrap metal on site and will free up another area to facilitate more processing of bulky waste.

George said he expects there will be another two to three more collections before the work is completed.
