EnviRecover

Major Infrastructure and Improvement Schemes

The EnviRecover Plant

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! 

Every year, the plant will turn
200,000 tonnes of household waste,
the equivalent to 13 million black
wheelie bins, into electricity

Each claw grab of waste produces
enough electricity to power a
home for an entire year

Every year, the plant will produce
enough electricity to power
Kidderminster, Stourport on Severn
AND Bewdley combined

Every year, the plant will produce
enough electricity to power
the whole of Hereford

The average household in the
UK wastes £700 worth of food
every year – that's 8 shopping
trollies worth!
