Landfill wind turbines receive approval in UK

Waste Recycling Group (WRG), one of the UK’s largest waste and resource management services companies, received approval to site two wind turbines at its closed Carnaby Landfill site.

The Carnaby Wind Energy Project will see the development of two turbines, each capable of generating up to 3MW of renewable electricity, which together are enough to power more than 2,500 homes. WRG anticipates that construction will commence early in 2012, and that the site will become operational by Summer 2012. The planning application followed a rigorous environmental assessment of the site and months of consultation with the local community.

WRG has six other landfill wind farms planned for development.
