Triple capacity for green waste site

Hampshire residents recycle so much green waste that waste contractor Onyx this week announced plans to triple the capacity at one of its composting sites.

The site at Little Bushy Warren Copse is one of three composting facilities operated by Onyx as part of Project Integra Recycle for Hampshire.

Onyx composting manager Peter Mills said: "In the eight years since the introduction of green waste composting, Onyx has processed over 500,000 tonnes of green material and recycled it into the fine grade peat free soil conditioner, Pro-Grow.

"The waste comes from kerbside collections and the county's 26 household waste recycling centres."

The Pro-Grow product has been used in such high profile projects as the Eden Project in Cornwall, London's Millennium Park and the Canary Wharf development.
