Construction of a new Bio-waste Recycling Centre. It was the largest bio-waste recycling centre in Ireland and is capable of handling between 60,000 and 80,000 tonnes of food and garden waste each year.
The facility was constructed in a disused quarry to provide a new bio waste recycling centre to serve the Greater Belfast area. The state of the art facility uses in-vessel composting technology which will shorten the natural composting process and allow for increased volumes to be treated. The development is one of Europe’s most advanced recycling facilities and will play a significant role in Northern Ireland meeting stringent new recycling targets.
