Amey is expanding in waste treatment

22 September 2017 | Deborah Shrewsbury

Amey has been awarded a contract with Central Bedfordshire Council to treat household waste at its energy-from-waste facility in Milton Keynes.


The company will handle household kerbside residual waste for the local authority. The contract begins on 1st October and runs for three-and-a-half years, during which Amey will treat 25,000 tonnes of waste a year at its Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park.


Rob Edmondson, Amey’s environmental services managing director, said: “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 in the commissioning phase. Once fully operational they will, between them, treat more than 450,000 tonnes of waste a year and generate enough energy to power the equivalent of more than 50,000 homes.
