Pepper Commercial have negotiated a new lease on the former compost recycling facility on behalf of Viridior at Clay Lane, Uffculme. The property comprised 9,775 sq.ft. (926.83 sq.m.) on a site of 2.2 acres. The property formed part of Viridor’s holding at Uffculme that includes landfill and a proposed solar farm. Broadpath Compost Recycling Facility was constructed as a purpose built compost recycling centre but had not seen extensive use before it was closed down.
Aggregate Industries also have an adjoining aggregate extraction facility at the location and intend to expand their operations at Uffculme. The property attracted extensive interest from recycling operators both regionally and nationally although the waste recycling use of the property will not be reused.
