Facility Manager, Andy Macqueen of Veolia Environmental Services said:

“We think this is a great opportunity for our neighbours and local residents to come and explore what happens at our site. We hope people will come to meet us and gain an inside view on how we are working behind the scenes on their behalf!”
Chineham Energy Recovery Facility is part of the Project Integra network of waste management infrastructure, designed to handle Hampshire’s household waste and recycling.  In Hampshire just 10% of our household waste is sent to landfill – topping the league tables for waste diverted from landfill.
