Sita UK received the planning permission to build an energy-from-waste (EfW) facility at Great Balkenham near Ipswich, the company announced on 21 July, 2011. By granting the permission, the Environment Agency paved the way for the construction of the 269,000 tonnes per year facility which will manage Suffolk's residual household waste. Sita UK has a 25-year contract with the Suffolk County Council to build and operate the plant. The company plans to start with construction work at the site later this year and commission the plant by the end of 2014. Suffolk County Council aims to recycle 60 per cent of its household waste by 2015, Mr Mark Bee of the County Council said.
