Biffa working in partnership with West Sussex County Council to reduce the amount of non-recycled ‘black bag’ household rubbish West Sussex sends to landfill.
Welcome to Biffa West Sussex Ltd’s website about the flagship Mechanical Biological Treatment facility that has been built in the north of Horsham.
We have built this facility as part of a 25-year contract with West Sussex County Council to help reduce the amount of non-recycled ‘black bag’ household rubbish West Sussex sends to landfill.
The new facility will help manage the County’s black bag rubbish and turn as much of it as possible into a resource, using tried and tested Mechanical Biological Treatment technology.
We have created this website to provide information on how the facility will turn rubbish into a resource, on the construction works that were taking place on site and, in time, to provide information on our operations.
