About Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park
Milton Keynes Waste Recovery Park is an exciting new facility which deals with Milton Keynes’ black sack waste in a sustainable way.
It brings together state-of-the-art mechanical treatment and heat energy recovery technologies to make the most of rubbish from households and businesses across the borough.
Waste which had previously been landfilled – what we known 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).
Amey has built and is operating the new facility on behalf of the council.
