C443 - Household Waste Recycling Centre, Ellesmere Port

Cheshire County Council

Construction of a new household waste recycling centre.


Household Waste Recycling Centre

Importation of 20,000 cubic metres of surcharge fill to compress the peat underlying the site. The fill was left in place to allow settlement over 6 months. Following the confirmation of sufficient compaction half the fill was then removed and used in landscaping bunds and the works constructed on the remaining material. The construction of the waste site was undertaken through winter to a 14 week programme. This included a concrete retaining wall, concrete loading areas, roadways and footpaths, new office facilities, steel walkways/skip bays, large block paved areas and landscaping.
