The 5000 square metre site (about the size of a football pitch) is not in the area of the woods that is a Nature Reserve. It is behind the recycling area off Edsbergsvägen where the car park for Danderyds Golfklubb is. Although the neighbourhood needs and wants the depot, people living around the site received no warning that it was coming and have criticised the council for not giving any notice.
The nature association, Naturskyddsföreningen, was also not pleased that no environmental study was conducted first. The main concern for them is that when snow is dumped, oil from the road and bits of tarmac naturally come too and that would like to see what will happen to that when the snow melts.
The site will open in the autumn (2016) and the kommun plans to evaluate the environmental impact before the first snow comes.
