Our Resource Recovery Centre at Purton, near Swindon is a landfill and hazardous landfill but also includes a household recycling centre.
Our waste and recycling operations at Purton play an important strategic role for Wiltshire. Activities focused on one large site include landfill, a household recycling centre and depot from which skip recycling services are operated.
The site also provides an important regional facility for the disposal of hazardous waste, most of which comes from Wiltshire itself. Other wastes handled include contaminated soils from sites that are being re-developed as a means of minimising the call on greenfield sites. You can read a community brief about hazardous waste disposal here.
We have initiated a community liaison committee for the site which includes representatives from Purton Parish Council, Wiltshire Council, Braydon Parish Meeting and Ps & Qs. You can read liaison committee minutes here.
