Amey's Waste Treatment business unit operates the best technology available across our four strategic sites in North Yorkshire, Milton Keynes, Cambridgeshire and the Isle of Wight.
This includes everything from mechanical and biological treatment, traditional mass-burn energy from waste and material recycling technologies to in-vessel composting, advanced thermal treatment, innovative small-scale energy from waste and anaerobic digestion.
As we emerge from lockdown, the challenges presented by the climate emergency remain. To ‘build back better’ in this sector, we need people and technologies to develop the solutions.
Through our waste treatment operations, we see first-hand how society uses resources and how different technologies are able to reduce impact through recovering value and improving sustainability, social value and social inclusion. In other words, infrastructure that delivers positive societal benefits and outcomes.
We’re keeping waste treatment sites fully operational at a time of higher waste generation – Milton Keynes, Isle of Wight, North Yorkshire and Cambridgeshire are all working at full capacity, with significant additional tonnages of waste being collected from households by local authorities and contractors across the country. Additionally, Waste Treatment team members have been supporting communities through passing on their knowledge of how to properly fit PPE.
