Clarification of information

The request was successful.

Paula Keaveney

Dear Sir or Madam,

I recently received a leaflet from a third party making a number of statements about MWDA or about activities for which MWDA is responsible. This leaflet was received on 1 March 2009. I would like information to clarify these statements please.

The leaflet states that

"MWDA has already identified two sites in Liverpool and Knowsley for potential new incinerators". Can you please tell me

a. if this is true
b. if it is true, where MWDA is in the process of pursuing this
c. if any Council has in fact already refused to allow the siting of an incinerator

The leaflet states that

" There are proposals for a large incinerator to burn rubbish at the junction of the M62 and M57"

Can you tell me please

if this is an MWDA proposal and if so where MWDA is in the process of pursuing this

The leaflet states that

"domestic rubbish lorries .. are often driven along Speke Boulevard to go to landfill in Cheshire"

Can you tell me please

a. the exact routes taken by MWDA lorries from the waste transfer stations in Liverpool to any landfill sites
b. the exact routes taken by lorries taking recyclates to the MRF in Bidson and
c. if in fact any lorries operated by or contracted for local councils on Merseyside go directly to the landfill sites used.

The leaflet is produced on behalf of Jack Allen Holdings but this should not restrict your answer as these statements having been made in public there is no reason for commercial confidentiality to be argued in this case.

Yours faithfully,

Paula Keaveney
