£140m recycling and energy facility up and running

A £140m recycling and energy recovery facility in Leeds has been completed and handed over to the council.

All of the city’s black bin waste is now being treated at the Cross Green building, operated by Veolia.

The business, which also has an established site in Sheffield, has made a pledge to boost its ranks with staff from marginalised groups including army veterans, ex-offenders as well as long-term unemployed and homeless people to supplement its 14,000 UK staff.
