Waste recycling centre plans near Truro come under fire
PLANS to build a new waste recycling centre on land near Truro have been criticised and opposed by a local council.
CORMAC Solutions ltd, Cornwall Council’s arms-length engineering contractor, has submitted plans to build a waste and recycling depot on land south west of Trewaters Farm in Trispen just outside Truro, off the A39.
If plans are green lit then the site could take in concrete, coal, tar, wood, plastic, soil, tiles and ceramics processing them for recycling.
Crushing machines could also be installed.

But St Erme Parish Council has voiced their objections against plans, claiming an access road off the A39 to the site is already an accident hotspot.
In a statement on Cornwall Council’s planning website, the parish council said: “We feel that the access in and out of the site from the A39 would be too dangerous with slow moving large vehicles pulling out onto a fast road.
“The exit to turn right from the site would have to cross two lanes of traffic and we feel that this is unacceptable.
“There have been several accidents recently at junctions stretching along this road.
“There has been no public consultation on this application and due to the size, type of planning application and proposed type of waste we feel this should take place and be advertised appropriately to inform residents of the proposals.”
Plans are due to be discussed at Cornwall Council’s Central Sub-Area Planning Committee on Wednesday September 4.
