Resources Management UK Ltd, the operator of the site, was acquired in March 2022 by the Dauson Environmental Group.


We are part of the Dauson Environmental Group consisting of businesses associated with different elements of the construction industry, primarily recycling & waste management, demolition, soil treatment, green energy, construction, and remediation.

The Withyhedge landfill site was acquired as part of the strategic development of the Group.

Withyhedge landfill site


The Withyhedge landfill site located is situated approximately five miles north of Haverfordwest, immediately north of Haverfordwest Airport to the east of the A40.

The nearest communities include the the villages of Treffgarne and Spittal to the north, Bethlehem to the ea st and Rudbaxton to the south.

SITE Permits


Withyhedge landfill site is a licenced, permitted site for the landfilling of non-hazardous, unrecyclable waste and regulated by Natural Resources Wales.

The site is currently permitted and authorised to accept 250,000 tonnes of waste per year. As part of our permitting conditions, we have a legal obligation to act as custodian for the site for a period up to 30 years post-closure and remain responsible for its environmental impact.

OUR CORE VALUES

1

We are committed to operating to the highest standards, to ensure we meet our statutory responsibilities and protect our environment and local wildlife.

2

We have invested heavily in the Withyhedge site with a view to providing a safe, compliant, and high-quality facility for future use.

3

We have a long-term plan for the site including relandscaping, enhancing biodiversity and exploring opportunities for green energy production.

4

We are committed to working with the local community to ensure that we are good neighbours and responsible custodians of the site now and for future generations.

Current re-engineering works


Since taking over the site, it has become apparent that some re-engineering works were required to bring the site up to the standard we would expect and to ensure we comply with all our regulatory, planning, and environmental responsibilities.

These works involve excavating and repositioning some historically landfilled material and part of the gas collection network. Disruption of the historic waste and gas has unfortunately resulted in the odour being emitted. The odour does not have any connection with the waste currently being accepted on site. We are working closely with Natural Resources Wales, who regulate the site, to ensure these necessary works are compliant with our legal and environmental responsibilities.

We have appointed an odour specialist who will help us closely monitor the situation and advise us how best to minimise the impact on the local community.

We anticipate that the re-engineering works will continue for three to four months, but once the works are complete, this should alleviate the odour issues.

As with any landfill site, there is the potential for future failures in the gas wells which could result in odour, but we will be doing everything possible to ensure this doesn’t happen.

Future proposals on site


We have invested heavily in the Withyhedge site with a view to providing a compliant and high-quality site for future use.

We are currently exploring the future use of the site. The long-term plans for the site are to return it to agriculture/ grazing, although we anticipate that some areas of the site will lend themselves to green energy production.

The site currently produces biogas, and this could potentially continue. Existing solar developments on neighbouring sites would indicate that this type of development may be appropriate in the future.
