Putting Suffolk's waste to good use

Welcome to the Suffolk energy-from-waste facility website

SUEZ recycling and recovery UK and Suffolk County Council are working together to manage residual household waste in Suffolk over the next 25 years, diverting it from landfill and putting it to good use.

To reduce the amount of Suffolk’s waste that goes to landfill and the associated cost to council taxpayers, the Suffolk energy-from-waste facility uses the waste left after recycling – from homes and some businesses across Suffolk – to generate enough electricity to power 30,000 homes.

The facility, which was built and is run by SUEZ, began operating in December 2014.

Along with the latest news, here you will find information about how the facility works and the on-site visitor centre.
