A recycling firm has said its efforts to reduce any environmental issues have continued to produce positive results.

Monoworld, based on the Sanders Lodge industrial estate in Rushden, said it has been working pro-actively with the Environment Agency since it commenced operations at the site in 2013, rather than the four years previously reported.

Following guidance issued by the agency, the firm said its efforts to minimise all environmental concerns were continuing.

The Environment Agency told the Northants Telegraph last month that Monoworld had put an improved fire prevention plan in place, the amount of waste onsite has been halved and plastic waste of more than six-months-old has been removed from the site.

They asked the firm to produce and implement an improved fly management plan and the result of this was a reduction in fly numbers between 2013 and 2014.
