Amey sends food waste to Tamar Energy

Tamar Energy and Amey have signed a five-year deal by which 5,000 tonnes of municipal food waste from the Isle of Wight will go to anaerobic digestion (AD) annually.

The announcement follows the start on 1 November of Amey’s 25-year contract to manage waste and recycling collections for Isle of Wight Council.

Amey will deliver the kerbside-collected food waste to Tamar’s Basingstoke plant, pictured. 

Charlie Flounders, Tamar Energy’s head of feedstock, said: “This contract represents a partnership with one of the UK’s leading waste management service providers.

“It’s another demonstration that AD is a genuine waste management option for local authorities that delivers tangible financial and environmental benefits.”

Rob Edmondson, Ames director of waste and environmental services, said: “There is an excellent match between Tamar Energy and Amey’s standards in providing a competitively priced, professional, quality service.

“We are pleased to be working with Tamar to ensure the council’s recycling commitments are met and waste disposal costs are minimised.”
