Eco Park for Surrey

Work is underway on Surrey’s innovative new Eco Park development. This collection of facilities will process waste from Surrey households to create fuels to produce power for the national grid and a fertiliser for use in farming. The Eco Park’s facilities will handle and process bulky waste, recyclables and residual waste from homes in northern Surrey, food waste from homes around Surrey and some waste from local businesses.
