Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, and Moray Councils are working together to build an energy from waste facility to process non-recyclable waste from 2021, when a landfill ban comes into force in Scotland – find out more in this website and please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
Groups and organisations in the local area will be able to apply for community benefits such as training and job opportunities and the use of the contractors' time and skills to support local projects.
From 2021, new legislation means it will no longer be possible to landfill our waste. Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray councils are working together to build an energy from waste facility to process the non-recyclable waste.
Planning permission for the energy from waste plant was granted in 2016 and it will be built and operational by 2021.
The energy from waste plant will process non-recyclable waste from Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray councils, and will produce both electricity for the national grid and heat for a district heating network.
The neighbouring community of Torry will benefit from the low cost energy bills from the district heating network.
