What we are doing about Walleys Quarry

Environment Agency's role and actions

The Environment Agency (EA) regulates the environmental permits held by Red Industries RM Limited (the operator) for Walley’s Quarry landfill site.  

There are two environmental permits in force. 

Within the permits there are conditions concerning the operations that the sites can carry out, including waste types and handling, emissions and monitoring.  

The EA regulation of the site includes visits, both announced and unannounced. Representatives from the EA attend the ‘Walley’s Liaison Group’ meeting to provide summaries of the regulation and any complaints received.
