Veolia Environmental Services signed a 25-year Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contract with Leeds City Council for residual municipal waste treatment and energy recovery in November 2012.
The contract includes the installation of a high-tech recycling and energy recovery facility that will save Leeds city council £200 million over the term of the contract compared with the cost of landfilling its residual municipal waste. Both planning permission and environmental permit have been received to develop the Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility at the former wholesale market site in the Cross Green Industrial Estate. Construction activities commenced on the 16th September 2013.
