Waste Infrastructure & Modernisation programme

The Waste Infrastructure & Modernisation programme includes the development of previously acquired land at Pixash Lane, Keynsham, to relocate and consolidate Council waste & recycling operations and modernise the existing public Recycling Centre. Significant progress has been made in recent years, and the planning application is to be considered by the Planning Committee at the end of June. The final approval of capital is now required in order to progress into the final stage, construction and relocation in early 2023.
Proposals for re-providing household waste and recycling centres in Bath continue to be developed and appraised so that Bath residents will have uninterrupted access to recycling centres local to them, aligned with the Council’s Climate and Nature priorities. Residents were consulted in December on their ideas both for sites and future recycling, and one site under consideration is next to the Odd Down park and ride. Funding for solutions agreed over the coming months will be committed through the Council Budget-setting process for 2022/23.
