Waste transfer station, Calvert Landfill Site, Calvert
This is the waste transfer station for Calvert Landfill Site which currently occupies an area of 106 hectares to the west of the station, off camera to the right, and which is run by the Waste Recycling Group for the Department of the Environment. Five container trains arrive each day by different routes, see SP6924 : Railway lines near Calvert, four from Brentford in London, and one from Bath and Bristol, known irreverently as the Avon Binliner. The containers, each of which contains 14 tons of waste, are loaded onto trucks waiting on the road alongside the trains. The trucks then take the waste to the landfill site to be tipped.
