Construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall has been appointed to create the new £23 million state-of-the-art operational hub on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds.
It includes a waste transfer station, a split level household waste recycling centre, vehicle depot and a re-use shop facility.
Suffolk County Council, Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council are involved in the project and will use the site at Hollow Road Farm, in Fornham St Martin, to provide waste collection and disposal facilities.
Saul Humphrey, managing director of Morgan Sindall’s east region, said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed to deliver the new West Suffolk Operational Hub. West Suffolk is becoming an increasingly popular place to live and it’s important that the right facilities are in place to manage the demands of this growing community.
“We’re looking forward to delivering a facility that is sympathetic to the surrounding environment and will provide high-quality services for communities across West Suffolk for years to come.”
