Agency steps in to move Averies filth

This Is Wiltshire: Agency steps in to move Averies filth Agency steps in to move Averies filth

THOUSANDS of tonnes of unburned rubbish has started to be forcibly taken from the site of the ongoing blaze at Averies Recycling.

Environment Agency contractors have begun shifting up to 3,000 tonnes of non-hazardous waste from the Marshgate site after the company failed to comply with orders to remove it themselves.

The waste, made up of mainly non-recyclable, commercial materials, is being moved by contractors from Hills Waste Solutions to the permitted landfill site in Chapel Farm, Blunsdon.

The removal will enable firefighters to tackle the blaze, which has been burning at the site for four weeks, more aggressively.

James Mahoney, area manager at Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service, said: “Following enforcement action taken by the Environment Agency, control has been taken of the Marshgate site and work is underway to remove significant volumes of waste, which has precluded fire crews from being able to tackle the blaze full blast.

“In the coming days, it is hoped sufficient waste will have been taken away so this more intensified firefighting can begin.

“This is a long and complicated operation and we are grateful for the support and co-operation of residents and local businesses affected by the fire, which we all agree has been going on too long.

“Another step forward has been taken today and rest assured we’re working hard to minimise disruption and ensure normality can resume as soon as possible.

“Inevitably, the smoke means things will unfortunately seem worse before they get better and once again I thank everyone for their patience.”

The rubbish being shifted from the site will be checked and dampened as a precaution before it leaves Averies Recycling.

When firefighters intensify their work after its removal it is expected that the cloud of smoke over Swindon that built up during the initial stages of the fire will return.

Air quality levels will continue to be monitored daily by Swindon Council and Public Health England so that local people can be advised on any necessary health precautions.

Preparations are also underway to protect the drainage systems ahead of thousands of litres of water per minute being used to tackle the blaze, which started four weeks ago.

The waste transfer operation forms part of a multi-agency plan, which is being advanced by partner organisations committed to the joint aim of putting the fire out faster for local residents and businesses.

This story has run and run, and now it seems that ultimately we, the taxpayers, will end up footing the bill for this fiasco.

This is why it is important that we push for an inquiry into the events surrounding the fire, and its subsequent events.

Surely Swindon residents want an enquiry into this disaster and the reasons why this has taken so long to sort out?

There is a serious need for an independent review of these events.

The removal of this filth will no doubt obfuscate any chance of locating the source and method of ignition.

Why has so much rubbish been allowed to be dumped rather than taken to landfill where it should have gone in the first place.

How many other skip operations are similarly stockpiling rather than tipping at the proper place.

How does the Environment Agency issue 'licences' and what effective checking is carried out.

How did the suggestion to remove the filth to the vacant park and ride site emerge in the first place.

We should really be worried whenever we read that all these 'partner agencies' are 'working with' each other. Not only are there too many of them but whenever you read that bureau speak, you know there has been a failure and that they are moving to shift the buck.

Sorry folks I did say when this was mooted originally it was unlikely to have enough signatures.
However I also said a friend of mine with a lung disorder has sent black powder collected on fans and flat surfaces in his home for examination and has contacted a solicitor--not one of the ambulance chaser type--and it seems household insurance may cover costs. I would advise anyone affected to take advice now. Good luck to all.

Very good post. As they say too many cooks spoil the broth, with this many different companies and agencies, is it any wonder it has taken this long to actually do something (most of whom don't seem to have a clue which makes it worse). I think what we need to know is where the buck actually stops and deal with them appropriately. Incidentally just seen an Averies lorry drive by!

Ok this story has run and run and who's fault it is. Ok the fire was an accident waiting to happen, not having fire breaks between waste piles storing waste/wood against buildings containing flammable/hazardous liquids. But what if the Fire Brigade wasn't on strike and when the Cricklade crew that turn up first just run their hose out and contained the fire ( that at the time was no more than in a 10-15 meter vicinity) rather than **** foot around planning their approach to the situation that fire would of been out that night. So the fire speed and the the Environmental Agency hampered it by stopping the Fire Brigade putting it out 'fact' full stop! Maybe the Adver should stop being so biased in their reporting and get the complete facts instead of relying on hearsay. I feel for all the residents in the area and hope they put claims in with all the ambulance chasing law firms, cause I wouldn't want it on my back door! I also agree Lee Averies should be shut down and if you search for anyone in Swindon (or Shepton Mallet) that has a good word to say about him you will not find one! Enough said!
