Cory set for council contract in Wales

Cory Environmental has won a three-year contract for residual waste in Gwynedd, North Wales.

Starting from January, the interim contract involves the disposal of up to 30,000 tonnes of waste per annum into Cory’s Hafod landfill site in Johnstown near Wrexham.  

Gwynedd Council is a partner in the North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project which is currently procuring a 25-year service due to be operational by 2017/18.

Steve Rogers, senior development manager, Cory Environmental, said: “We have been able to provide Gwynedd with a cost-effective disposal solution that will help them manage their residual waste prior to the commencement of the North Wales Residual Waste Treatment solution.”

Cory has had a presence in North Wales since acquiring the Hafod landfill site in 2008. In 2009 Cory installed a 1,100kW landfill gas generation scheme to recover renewable energy from residual waste deposited at the site. 

  • Meanwhile, in Wiltshire, the Northacre Resource Recovery Centre, based on the Northacre trading estate in Westbury has been issued with a completion certificate, signalling the official start of the 25-year contract between Hills Waste Solutions, the site’s operators, and Wiltshire Council.
