Waste firm starts to remove rubbish

A WASTE processing company has started removing 3,000 tonnes of material from its Northamptonshire site.

Think Environmental, the firm which owns Blackbridge Farm near Burton Latimer, was given eight weeks to remove burned waste after withdrawing its appeal against enforcement action earlier this week.

And Northamptonshire County Council has reported that the company is on track to have the material removed by the end of this month.

Blackbridge Farm was the scene of two major fires last year, with the second starting after plastic waste material stored on open ground self-heated and caught fire.
