The EnviRecover Plant is the largest infrastructure project in the region and will deliver a massive reduction in the use of landfill for the disposal of household waste in the two counties.
Located on the Hartlebury Trading Estate near Kidderminster, Worcestershire, the facility complements Worcestershire County Council and Herefordshire Council's other waste and recycling facilities, such as EnviroSort at Norton.
His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester today officially opened EnviRecover - Worcestershire County Council and Herefordshire Council's flagship waste treatment facility in June 2017.
EnviRecover will transform up to 200,000 tonnes of waste per year (that's the equivalent of over 13 million black wheelie bins of waste!) into enough electricity to power 32,000 homes – that's enough to power all of the homes in Kidderminster, Stourport on Severn and Bewdley combined!
