Energy from waste plants in Devon

exeterefwDevon County Council is one of the top performing counties for recycling in England. Continuing to reduce, reuse and recycle waste is a priority for the authority. However, even after extensive recycling activity, and the ‘Don’t let Devon go to waste’ campaign, there will always be a proportion of waste left over that can’t be recycled, reused or composted. This is known as residual waste and it needs to be dealt with. Devon County Council’s strategy is to use it to create energy, reducing the amount sent to landfill.

swdwpIn order to acheive this strategic aim, Devon County Council is involved in the development of two Energy from Waste facilities; one in Exeter and one in Plymouth. Further information about these facilities can be found by using the links below:
