Maidenhead - SITA UK is about to submit a Proposal of Application Notice to Aberdeenshire Council outlining its plans to develop a multi-million pound resource recovery park as part of its contract to manage the treatment and disposal of Aberdeenshire’s waste for the next 15 years. The company’s plans for modern, sophisticated waste treatment facilities will divert waste from landfill and recover as much value as possible from the 100,000 tonnes of residual household waste.

The resource recovery park will incorporate a range of high-tech solutions, including a mechanical biological treatment facility, in-vessel composting and a gasification plant. These will lead to the creation of 200 jobs during construction and 35 permanent operational jobs.
The resource recovery park will be in line with Scotland’s Zero Waste Policy, which seeks to make the most efficient use of resources by minimising the country’s demand on primary resources and maximising the re-use, recycling and recovery of resources, instead of treating them as waste.
Martin Cracknell, SITA UK’s Strategic Development Manager in Scotland, said: “The Stoneyhill Resource Recovery Park represents an enormous amount of inward investment of approximately £60 million (Euro 71 million), with significant socio-economic benefits, including the creation of about 200 jobs during the construction phase, and a further 35 permanent jobs to operate the facilities at the park.
