Work with AmeyCespa will start in June to build Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park – a new facility which will deal with the borough’s black sack waste.

The first stage of developing the facility, which will be located in Old Wolverton, is the demolition of existing buildings which will start on Monday 9th June. This will take around three months, and once completed work will begin to prepare the site for the construction of new buildings which will house the waste treatment technologies.

Construction of the new facility is due to be completed by January 2016. It will then go through commissioning and rigorous testing periods before it is fully operational in September 2016.

Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park will use a combination of three state-of-the-art technologies – mechanical treatment, anaerobic digestion and Advanced Thermal Treatment. Together, they will increase the amount of recyclable materials which are removed from the waste, in turn cutting the amount of rubbish sent to landfill to less than 5%.
