Our commitment to innovation and recycling has contributed to Southern Water’s achievement of a zero waste policy.
Only a handful of utilities achieve 100% recycling rates and the MTS in-house waste treatment facility has played a key role for Southern Water.
The solid debris that ends up at Southern Water treatment works (such as wet wipes, cotton buds and sanitary items) was creating around 10,000 tonnes of landfill waste every year. This waste is now composted into beneficial soil conditioner at the MTS facility (operated by sister company Composting Facilities Services Ltd), the UK’s first industrial scale in-vessel composting system.
Antony Crust, Managing Director at MTS said; “We’re proud of our contribution to Southern Water’s achievement. We’ve always led the way for environmentally friendly waste treatment and we’re committed to expanding our recycling operations.”
