From 2025, new legislation means it will no longer be possible to landfill our waste. Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray councils are working together to build an energy from waste facility to process the non-recyclable waste.
Planning permission for the energy from waste plant was granted in 2016 and it will be built and operational in 2023.
The energy from waste plant will process non-recyclable waste from Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray councils, and will produce both electricity for the national grid and heat for a district heating network.
The neighbouring community of Torry will benefit from the low cost energy bills from the district heating network.

A Zero Waste Vision
Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, and Moray Councils are working together to build an energy from waste facility to process non-recyclable waste from 2022. This will provide a solution to a landfill ban which comes into force in Scotland in 2025 – find out more on this website and please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
