Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park approved by council

Plans have been approved for a major waste treatment facility in Milton Keynes.

AmeyCespa’s proposals for the Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park were passed by Milton Keynes Council’s Development Control Committee last week.

The plant, to be built on a brownfield site in Old Wolverton, is aimed at saving the council in excess of £50m on its waste management bill.

Amey says that the facility, combined with existing recycling schemes, will mean only 2% of the borough’s waste will be landfilled.

Andrew Cousins, project manager for AmeyCespa, said: “This facility will utilise the most up-to-date and cost effective technologies to deal with the borough’s waste.

“It will make the most of people’s everyday rubbish, ensuring as much is recycled as economically possible as well as generating renewable energy and creating electricity from waste which would otherwise have gone to landfill.”

Work is expected to start on site next year with the plant operational by 2016.
