Amey has won a contract with Central Bedfordshire Council to treat household kerbside residual waste at its energy from waste facility in Milton Keynes.
The three-and-a-half year contract will begin on 1 October with 25,000 tonnes of waste annually being treated at Amey’s Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park.
Amey’s Environmental Services Managing Director, Rob Edmondson, said: “We’re delighted to secure this contract, which will see us bringing in waste to our new facility in Milton Keynes. This is an exciting time for Amey as our new state-of-the art waste treatment plants in Milton Keynes and North Yorkshire come online.
“It demonstrates how Amey is focusing and growing its waste treatment capabilities, with a further treatment facility in-build on the Isle of Wight and another being planned in Cambridgeshire.”
Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park and Allerton Waste Recovery Park in North Yorkshire are currently in the commissioning phase. When fully operational they will, between them, treat more than 450,000 tonnes of waste per year and generate enough energy to power the equivalent of more than 50,000 homes.
