Recycle the old and in with the new


Veolia Environmental Services has taken the bull by its horns and recycled most of the steel left with the demolition of its old energy recovery facility (ERF) on Bernard Road , Sheffield .

In true keeping with the reduce, reuse and recycling message, a staggering 2,700 tonnes of steel was recycled.

A huge 90 tonnes of non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, gold and brass were also recycled.

Veolia Environmental Services operations director Nigel Garrod said: I was sad to see the old facility demolished but its fantastic that all the recovered metal is being recycled.

The new facility which was built with the latest technology has been fully operational since
22 April 2006 and helps manage waste from Sheffield s residents in a sustainable way.

The original ERF was constructed in the 1970s and ceased in December 2006 when it was replaced with Veolias new state of the art ERF, built in partnership with Sheffield City Council.

The company is now completing the landscaping of the whole
Bernard Road site in line with the original planning consent for the ERF.
