DECC rolls out domestic RHI

The Department for Energy and Climate Change has launched the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (d-RHI). This incentive scheme pays households for the heating and/or hot water they supply themselves with new renewable heating systems.

It is designed to make renewable home heating, including biomass systems, affordable for the UK’s three million homes off the gas grid. On-grid homes are also eligible for the scheme.

Liverpool gains new £1.4m HWRC

City planners have given Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority the go-ahead for a new £1.4m Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) off Cheadle Avenue in Old Swan.

It will provide facilities for the north of the city and relieve pressure on the Otterspool site in Aigburth – currently the only HWRC within the Liverpool City Council boundary.

It will be equipped to collect a wide range of household materials for recycling, including: car batteries, cardboard, engine oil, garden waste, paper, furniture, rubble, scrap metal, textiles, drinks cans, timber, glass and soil.
