Site apologises for unpleasant smells

First published in

A NORTH Yorkshire recycling firm has said unpleasant odours at its site near York is down to upgrading works to its gas collecting wells.

Yorwaste, the North Yorkshire recycling and waste management specialist, is currently in the process of installing new wells that will collect landfill gas at its Harewood Whin site.

A spokesman said: Exerts are working to complete the work as soon as possible. As we close sections of the landfill site, it is important to capture the gas emitted as it can be converted into a renewable energy source.

“There is always a short interval from completing this work to being able to connect to the equipment that produces this renewable energy.

“In the meantime, we would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to people in the vicinity of the site.”
