Brynsworthy Waste Transfer Station –£200,000 contract value

The station at Brynsworthy becomes operational on Monday. It will enable Devon County Council to bulk up and transfer non-recyclable waste collected in North Devon and Torridge to facilities where it can be converted into electricity.

It means Devon is no longer sending any black bag waste to landfill, as elsewhere in Devon waste is already being sent to power facilities in Exeter and Devonport.

The Brynsworthy base was built and will be operated by SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK for Devon County Council.
