Councillors have called on a waste management company to meet people who had contaminated compost dumped on their doorstep. Wear Valley District Council is urging Premier Waste Management to explain its handling of waste on the Todhills Landfill site to people living in nearby Newfield, County Durham. The company was ordered to bury 10,000 tonnes of compost.
Council leader Neil Stonehouse said: “The people of Newfield need answers and we hope that a meeting will provide them. Durham County Council and Premier Waste have been backward in developing a strategy for waste disposal and are way behind other areas of the country.
