Position Overview

Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park is an exciting new facility which will deal with Milton Keynes' black sack waste in a sustainable way. It bring together state-of-the-art mechanical treatment and heat energy recovery technologies to cut the amount of rubbish sent to landfill to around 3%.

Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park will comprise the following technologies:
