Avonmouth Resource Recovery Centre

Avonmouth MRF and EfW

Construction of the £252 million Resource Recovery Centre (RRC) in Avonmouth began in Summer 2017. Once operational the Centre will use safe, environmentally sustainable and reliable technology to divert 320,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste away from landfill. The ERF will also generate up to 32MW of electricity which will power the facility itself and export enough energy to power around 44,000 homes.

Construction is expected to take around 36 months to complete and during this time there will be a range of benefits for the local community and economy. There are local contractors and suppliers working at the Avonmouth RRC and if you would like more information about how you can get involved, please contact us.

Viridor is committed to working with communities around Avonmouth and delivering further benefits to the surrounding area.


We will be looking to appoint around 48 permanent members of staff when facility is operational. The roles we will be looking to fill are listed below.

If the job title is highlighted there is more information available online, for all other recruitment enquiries, please contact Sophie Dilworth at Viridor on 07920 528541 or by email.

During construction period we will keep the local community updated through a regular Community Liaison Group and newsletters.
