New Earth Solutions continues expansion plan

Waste treatment and resource recovery firm New Earth Solutions has obtained planning permission from Bristol City Council its advanced composting facility.

The new facility will be based in Avonmouth, Bristol and has the capacity to take 50,000 tonnes of food waste and green waste per year from households in the Avon area. Bristol City Council has given NES a 20-year composting contract to meet the requirements of the council.

city councillor Judith Price said: Composting food waste has radically reduced the level of waste sent to landfill from Bristol. The councils approach is now widely recognised as the way forward by most local authorities. The community has taken to separating its food waste easily and quickly and the scheme is running smoothly. The final piece of the jigsaw is a clean, low-emission, local treatment facility. This will save our food waste travelling some 260,528 miles each year to the current site at Dorset, equating to around 70 tonnes of CO2.
