Duke opens Buckinghamshire's EfW facility

The Duke of Gloucester has formally opened FCC Environment’s Greatmoor energy-from-waste plant near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

The facility is the primary disposal point for Buckinghamshire County Council’s residual waste. Aylesbury Vale District Council is delivering material directly to the plant, while three other councils (South Bucks, Chiltern and Wycombe) will use a waste transfer station near High Wycombe built as part of the 30-year contract between FCC and the county council.

  • Right at the very start of the proposition here Bucks CC were advised by the residents that this was a proposal too far for which it would lock in the council with unnecessary charges for treatment when the market was already saying this was unnecessary.

    Now it has become true as gate fees are being quoted in England at a £zero cost already for the next ten years and that means that for Bucks CC the council tax payers will be paying £150 Million too much for this project.

    How does Councillor Tett get around that one? Perhaps he will resign.
