Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park brings together state-of-the-art mechanical treatment and heat energy recovery technologies to make the most of Milton Keynes’ black sack waste rubbish in a sustainable way.
Waste which had previously been landfilled – what we know as “black sack” waste - is used to create enough energy to power the equivalent of 11,000 homes (and in turn reduce landfill to around 3% and provide Milton Keynes Council with a saving on its waste management bill over the coming years).
MKWRP has be operational since March 2018 on behalf of Milton Keynes council.
