The plant has capacity for 60,000 tonnes per annum of household waste and is part of Wiltshire Council's strategy to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill.

Interserve is undertaking all the building and civil engineering works, with Italian company Entsorga delivering the process plant.

Interserve's associate director for civil engineering, Wayne Howell, said: "Planning permission was granted for this project two years ago and Interserve has been working with Hills Waste Solutions during this period to bring this project to fruition.

"The Northacre facility will reduce the proportion of Wiltshire's municipal waste sent to landfill to less than 20%, from a current level of around 37%."
