Asbestos, clinical and hygiene waste to be stored near homes in Worksop

It seems rather unlikely, but Nottinghamshire Live is reporting that a new site to deal with asbestos and clinical waste will be built on an industrial park near Worksop.

It means hazardous asbestos and clinical waste will be stored on the Sandy Lane site, before being moved on for disposal.

The asbestos will be buried in landfill, while the medical waste will be incinerated elsewhere.

Body parts will not be handled on the site, but potentially-contaminated waste including incontinence pads, nappies and sanitary waste will be.

Around 30 vehicles per week will bring clinical waste to the site, while around 60 will bring asbestos.

This is then expected to be taken away by four to eight HGV removals per week.
