At the Waste Management Park in Waterbeach, Amey manages all of Cambridgeshire’s household recyclables and residual waste. At present, waste that cannot be recycled ends up in the landfill site which is filling up fast. Energy from Waste provides an opportunity to deal with this waste more effectively, generate electricity and prevent large quantities of waste from ending up in landfill.
Energy from Waste also provides the potential to heat homes, with the option of low-carbon heating providing significant environmental benefits. We have produced this infographic to provide more information on the benefits of Energy from Waste and how it provides a positive alternative to landfill.
