Our landfill operation at Waterbeach Waste Management Park deals with any waste which cannot be recycled or used to make compost.
Landfill is a last resort – our aim is to recycle and make the most of waste wherever possible.
But even when we landfill we’re doing something useful with the waste. By capturing the gases which occur when waste breaks down within the landfill, we are able to produce renewable electricity. The Waterbeach site produces enough renewable electricity to power the equivalent of 3,000 homes.
