Lostock Gralam, Cheshire

Viridor, one of the leading recycling and waste management companies in the UK, is one of two bidders that have been shortlisted for the final stage of Cheshire's Household Waste PFI Contract.

Viridor's plans have been developed to identify an alternative, sustainable waste treatment option for residual household waste.  Residual waste is the remaining waste that is left after recyclable materials (recyclates) have been removed for re-use or recycling. While recycling rates in Cheshire are good and still improving, there remains a quantity of household waste that can't be readily recycled. Viridor's proposal outlines a resource efficient solution for residual waste to also help deliver higher recycling levels. The solution offers good value for money and will bring positive social and economic benefits to the local area and the region.


These website pages have been produced by Viridor to provide accurate information on the content and progress of its proposals for a new Mechanical and Biological Treatment (MBT) waste facility to be located on an existing industrial site in Lostock Gralam, Northwich.

These pages are intended as a channel for communication between Viridor and the local community and stakeholders.  We hope you will take full advantage of this website and will make return visits to update yourself on the progress of Viridor's proposals.
