New £6.65m composting plant to open

The new £6.65m composting facility for North east Derbyshire will be officially opened today.

The facility, at Arwright, has been built to deal with food and garden waste collected by Bolsover District Council, North East Derbyshire District Council and Chesterfield Borough Council from around 128,000 households in the area.

Up to 40,000 tonnes of waste can be taken to the facility each year to be turned into compost.**
