Odour Issues in Wembley and Neasden Area

I am reproducing an email on the subject matter. Please ring at the telephone mentioned below to report if the odour is still comming from the waste transfer station.( this is for local residents only)

"I am writing to update you on the odour issue at the waste transfer station at Unit 2, Hannah Close, Neasden.

As of last Friday, all of the operators at the site have complied with the enforcement notice that was served on Friday 3 August 2012. This was significantly outside of the timeframe that we had required, but it means that all of the odorous waste has now been removed from the site and a deep clean has taken place.

As a result, the site was allowed to start taking waste in again on Tuesday 28 August. We have agreed with the site that they will operate at a limited capacity of 200 tonnes per day, rather than their full capacity of 600 tonnes per day. Since then, we have received one complaint of odour in the area. We were not able to substantiate this complaint and cannot at this time say with any certainty that it came from this site. As a result, we believe that the operators are managing to contain odour.

Whilst we have allowed the company to begin limited operations again, we are continuing to evaluate all our options in line with our Enforcement and Sanctions Statement. This will help us ensure that we are in position to respond both quickly and robustly if odour becomes an issue at the site again.

We are continuing to devote significant resources to this site and are closely monitoring the issue. Our officers will again be on standby over the weekend to respond if any further issues arise. If the odour situation deteriorates, we strongly urge the local community to contact our 24 hour Incident Hotline on 0800 80 70 60."
