Recycling And Transfer Station Planned For Thurles

Waste Recycling Station

Waste Recycling Station

New proposed plans for the erection of a Waste Recycling Station and a Waste Transfer Station for Mill Road, Thurles were announced recently.

Boomerang Recycling Limited have applied to Thurles Town Council for permission to construct a recycling and material recovery and transfer facility at Moonakeeba, Mill Road, Thurles, Co.Tipperary.

A Waste Facility Permit application is also expected to be submitted to the Environment Section of North Tipperary County Council.

The collection of waste on a commercial basis requires a waste collection permit from a relevant local authority in accordance with section 34(1) of the Waste Management Act 1996 (as amended).

Part IV V of the 1996 Act (as amended) provides for a stringent system of integrated waste licensing by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in respect of all significant waste recovery and disposal activities. This system is intended to ensure that high environmental standards apply in relation to the establishment, management, operation, closure and aftercare of licensable waste facilities.

Michael Ryan Thurles and Sinead Maher Kiltillane Templemore, joined forces in 2005 to create the existing Company Boomerang Skips and Recycling.

This new planned development, which is expected to be opposed by local housing estates nearby, would entail the demolition of an existing building on the site to facilitate plans.
