Raymond Brown Waste Solutions have commenced a new contract with Oakleaf Recycling to supply over 3,000 tonnes of our residual waste which they will convert into Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) for energy production. We will be one of the first customers for Oakleaf’s new state-of-the-art recovery facility, near Heathrow airport.
Over the years, the business has invested heavily into our recycling capabilities to maximise recovery rates and minimise the volumes of waste sent to landfill. This new agreement is anticipated to half those volumes sent to landfill in 2017-18 from our A303 Materials Recovery Facility.
This is a huge step forward towards our vision of achieving zero waste to landfill and we will continue maximising the opportunities to increase the volumes of residual waste which we can divert for SRF processing.
