Staffordshire countryside

Veolia Environmental Services were awarded planning consent in February 2011 to construct a state-of-the-art Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) at a site on the Four Ashes Industrial Estate. Construction began in June 2011. 

In October 2013 the first waste was delivered to site.  November 2013 saw the first waste burned.  This is another step along the road of helping Staffordshire County Council to divert waste from landfill and help to save the taxpayers of Staffordshire £250m over the lifetime of the contract.

The facility is now fully staffed with most of the team living within Staffordshire.  A number of specialist positions have seen people re-locate to the area and this has bought some staff to live in Brewood, Cannock and Codsall.
