Morley opens compost plant

He may have been given a new role to focus on global warming, but Climate Change and Environment Minister Elliot Morley proved this week that he just couldn't stay away from recycling.

Morley officially opened a £2.5 million compost plant in Fixborough, North Lincolnshire, which will turn 25,000 tonnes of local households' green waste into compost every year.

The site, owned by North Lincolnshire Council and run by SITA UK, was funded by money from the Government's £140 Waste Minimisation and Recycling Fund.

SITA UK North Lincolnshire contract manager Glennys Robinson, said: "From our experience up and down the country, composting is playing an ever more important role in the way that we manage waste.

"This new facility is fantastic news for waste management in North Lincolnshire."
