Hampshire wood contract awarded

An organics recycling firm has won a three-year contract to deal with waste wood in Hampshire.

Eco Sustainable Solutions will recycle wood delivered to the county’s household waste recycling centres.

The firm is expected to process 80,000 tonnes of waste wood annually at a new site in Southampton, with 60,000 tonnes shipped to Sweden to fuel power stations and the remainder used as animal bedding and biomass fuel in the UK.

Eco was awarded the contract by Veolia, which manages all of Hampshire’s municipal waste.

Peter Hardy, Eco’s commercial manager, said: “This is a significant expansion for Eco. It builds on the success of our existing partnership with Solent Stevedores, which has seen thousands of tonnes of waste wood diverted from landfill into more productive use, such as fuel and animal bedding.”
