To put the strategy in place, a network of facilities has been developed, including a Materials Recovery Facility, an In-Vessel Composting Facility, an Energy Recovery Facility and Waste Transfer Stations. Remaining local landfill and energy recovery will also be utilised for any non-recoverable waste.

The map below shows the locations of the facilities. All the sites have been selected after careful consideration of all the alternatives and with regard to planning guidance, the Waste Local Plan and recommendations contained in the Inspector’s Report.
