Norfolk waste could be sent to Suffolk incinerator

Norfolk and Suffolk county councils are in talks about sending some of Norfolk’s waste to the incinerator at Great Blakenham, near Ipswich.

But council leaders have insisted if such a deal is struck, it would be a temporary measure and not an alternative to the controversial Willows Power and Recycling Cen proposed for King’s Lynn.

Suffolk County Council makes landfill savings

Budget cuts of £38.6m have been approved by Suffolk County Council.

Savings include £1.5m from the children’s centres budget but the council said a new waste incinerator was saving £8.2m in landfill costs.

Chesterfield BioGas to supply upgrade tech to farm AD plant

Sheffield-based company Chesterfield BioGas (CBG) has been awarded another contract to supply their upgrading technology for a biogas plant that will be using organic agricultural waste to provide biomethane-to-grid.

The plant, located in Coupar Angus, Perthshire, will use feedstock including whole crop rye, sugar beet off-cuts, raw silage and some vegetable wastes to create biogas in an anaerobic digester.

Scottish Borders Council rejects garden waste review

A bid from Scottish Borders Council’s Conservative group to have the decision to scrap garden waste collections reviewed by experts has been rejected.

Councillors voted 21-10 against group leader Michelle Ballantyne’s call for Zero Waste Scotland to carry out an eight-week review of the waste management strategy which was agreed in December.
