Buckinghamshire set to approve FCC waste deal

A 30-year waste treatment contract for Buckinghamshire with FCC Environment is set to be finalised by the county council.

The council cabinet is recommended to award the contract for the treatment of Buckinghamshire’s residual municipal waste to FCC Environment UK at a meeting on 23 July.

The contract will include the treatment of around 109,000 tonnes of waste every year. FCC, formerly known as the Waste Recycling Group, will build an energy from waste plant on a landfill site at Greatmoor, Calvert with a capacity of 295,000 tonnes. It aims to supply energy to 36,000 homes.

The firm was chosen as preferred bidder for the contract in February and the plant gained planning permission in April.

The council said it would save more than £150m over the contract by sending less to landfill.
