Recycling at Northacre Resource Recovery Centre

Wiltshire business leaders to talk rubbish at site visit

Wiltshire business leaders will be talking rubbish during a site visit later this month.

Members of Wessex Chambers will be visiting Northacre Resource Recovery Centre at Westbury on Wednesday, February 26.

Wiltshire’s first mechanical biological treatment plant processes 60,000 tonnes of municipal waste each year, diverting it from landfill and turning it into valuable fuel and energy.

The £24 million facility, which was built and operated by Hills Waste Solutions, was opened in December last year, and will turn the county’s rubbish into waste for at least the next 25 years.

The visit takes place from 10.30am until noon and attendance is free. For more information, or to book a place, log on to
