Avondale opens MRF in central Scotland

Avondale Environmental has launched a materials recovery facility in central Scotland.

Scottish cabinet secretary for the environment Richard Lochhead (pictured) opened the first section of the £20m Polmont waste treatment development this week.

The MRF is capable of processing 200,000 tonnes of waste every year – the equivalent of all Glasgow’s black bag waste.

About 60% of this waste will be diverted from going to landfill through recycling and being used to develop fuels for energy production.

It will serve a wide range of existing clients including industrial, municipal and private sector customers.

Avondale Environmental managing director Colin Cooper said: “By providing an accessible facility in the heart of Scotland, we can offer a responsible alternative to landfill.

“It is also good news for the local community as our workforce is set to grow over the coming months as we increase towards full production”.
