Haverhill Recycling centre redevelopment

Work progressing on new Haverhill Recycling Centre.

Construction of a new £2 million recycling centre for Haverhill is under construction.

DXI Regeneration LTD was awarded the construction contract to build the new site on behalf of Suffolk County Council and working in partnership with FCC Environment in 2023.

The new centre, which should be ready by summer 2024, will be built within the current Waste Transfer Station in Homefield Road and will replace the current facility in Chalkstone Way.

The Waste Transfer Station is operated by FCC Environment, the council’s partner which manages all of Suffolk’s 11 recycling centres.

The new centre will feature:

  • A raised platform giving visitors an elevated position from which to safely dispose of waste - removing the need for steps
  • An easy-to-use layout allowing customers to access clearly marked recycling bays
  • No need to close the facility to replace full containers
  • Improved accessibility and increased capacity
  • Greater separation between public vehicles and larger vehicles
  • Queuing capacity within the site and better access from the public highway compared to the Chalkstone Way site.

The replacement recycling centre will meet the needs created by forecasted housing growth in the area and address growing demand at Chalkstone Way.

The waste transfer station – which takes waste collected locally and bulks it for onward reprocessing – will continue to operate at Homefield Road alongside the new recycling centre.

The project sees FCC Environment and Suffolk County Council working as part of the Suffolk Waste Partnership with West Suffolk Council.
