A materials recycling facility (MRF) has been opened by recycling and waste management company FCC Environment.
The £11 million MRF is located at Sutton Courtenay in Oxfordshire.
It will treat non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste collected from businesses in the county and will separate materials such as glass, paper, metals and plastics with residual waste used to create a refuse derived fuel.
The MRF has a capacity of 100,000 tonnes of waste per annum and is located on the site of an existing landfill.
FCC Environment head of regional development Paul Dumpleton said: “The business model for FCC Environment has been to develop modern waste processing infrastructure to ensure we can offer our business customers methods of extracting value from their waste and diverting as much material from landfill as possible.
“The Sutton Courtenay MRF is the next piece in this infrastructure jigsaw and will enable us to provide top class in the Oxfordshire area.”
