Our new facility at Westbury will dramatically boost the amount of household waste that is diverted from landfill in Wiltshire.

The Hills Waste Solutions’ Northacre resource recovery centre will increase the proportion of Wiltshire’s municipal waste diverted from landfill to more than 80 per cent, from a current performance of about 63 per cent and a total of less than 20 per cent a few years ago.

Diverting waste from landfill will help save the county’s taxpayers from paying landfill tax which is set to increase each year until 2014 when it will reach £80 per tonne.
