Residents will take to the streets of Sutton tonight.

They’ll gather outside the Council’s Civic Officers to voice concerns over the future of operations at Beddington Incinerator. 

Sutton Council says there are no plans to increase or change waste types at the site and that includes hazardous and medical waste.

Sutton Council statement on planning application from Viridor for permission to install a slab and diesel storage tank on land to the west of the Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) building to increase fuel storage at Beddington ERF


A spokesperson for Sutton Council said:


"The Council is not aware of any application from Viridor, the operator of the Beddington Energy Recovery Facility (ERF), to change the current permit as to what type of waste the facility is licensed to process. 


What can and can't go through the facility is strictly controlled by the Environmental Permit, which is awarded and monitored by the Environment Agency - a separate body to the council. 


Viridor has submitted a planning application for a new diesel storage tank at the Beddington site. 


The application for a new diesel storage tank has nothing to do with the recent permit application Viridor has made to the Environment Agency to increase the amount of waste the facility can treat by 10%. This is a separate application for the Environment Agency to consider and the Council will respond to the EA's consultation when it starts (expected to be later this year). The Council has already set out its concerns to the EA about the proposed increase and will set out a detailed case for its opposition to the application at the appropriate time."
