SUEZ already provides Devon under a contract to operate 18 household waste recycling centres and two waste transfer stations.

SUEZ recycling and recovery UK has been awarded a contract by Devon County Council to develop a new waste transfer station.

Valued at over £60m, the 10 year contract will see the new station built on the council’s Byrnsworthy site during 2018.

Once the station comes into service in February 2019, residual waste from the site is planned to be processed at the Severnside Energy Recovery Centre near Bristol where it will be used to generate energy for the national grid.

SUEZ already has a contract with Devon County Council to operate 18 household waste recycling centres and two waste transfer stations.

James Pike, regional director for SUEZ recycling and recovery, said: “From 2019, not only will we be able to help the residents of Devon recycle and reuse as much as possible at their household waste recycling centres.

“We’ll also be able to divert residual waste from North Devon and Torridge from landfill through the Severnside Energy Recovery Centre, where it will be used as a sustainable fuel to generate energy for the national grid.”
