Save the date - 14th February 2017

AWM love our new site that much we're unveiling it on Valentine's Day!

The 200,000 sq ft Materials Recovery Facility in Stourton, South Leeds – Valley Farm Road (VFR).

VFR brings an additional 250,000 tonnes of permitted processing and we have again asked our engineer partners, Eggersmann from Germany to supply and install the new plant.

Our last MRF at Gelderd Road, Leeds was opened in 2011 to facilitate waste from Leeds, Bradford and Calderdale Councils and contributed significantly to landfill diversion with the early commencement of exports to Combined Heat and Power plants overseas.  The site has now produced over 1M bales of fuel.

Our new facility will continue to develop innovative technology to drive the engineered fuel markets both in the UK and overseas.

AWM have invested a total of £10m in the site with an additional £5m in recycling equipment and £2.5m in more collection vehicles for both trade and skip waste.

Gordons’ Simon Mydlowski said: “In terms of size, this is a significant property transaction for the Yorkshire region. It is also a letting of huge importance to AWM as the company continues to grow its operations and scope of activity.

The deal also drew praise from Leeds City Council leader, Councillor Judith Blake. She said: “We very much welcome Associated Waste Management’s continued commitment to Leeds, and it is great news that through this latest significant investment a further 40 jobs will be created in the city.”

The official opening of VFR will take place at 1pm on the 14th February by The Rt Hon Hilary Benn MP and Cllr Judith Blake, Leader Leeds City Council.
