Promise of 18 new jobs after £2m deal with energy firm
10:00pm Thursday 10th July 2014 in News
A £2M deal brokered by the operator of a new waste incinerator plant due to start operating next month will create 18 jobs.
Viridor, which produces energy from household waste on behalf of Oxfordshire County Council at the new Ardley facility, has signed a 15-year contract with Raymond Brown Aggregates to process ash, a by-product of the incineration process, and turn it into materials for use in road construction and similar activities.
Mark Isaac, managing director of Southampton-based Raymond Brown Aggregates, said: “We look forward to developing a strong relationship with Viridor and sharing our knowledge and expertise.”
Stuart Sim, of Viridor, added: “We are delighted to have Raymond Brown on board.
“The company’s valuable knowledge and expertise will ensure at least 95 per cent of waste received into our new facility will be diverted from landfill.”
