Ardley ERF

Ardley ERF is conveniently located near Bicester in Oxfordshire, just off the M40 motorway.

The facility began operation in 2014, treating 300,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste each year. It will divert at least 95% of Oxfordshire’s residual municipal waste away from landfill and generate enough electricity to power around 38,000 homes.

Ardley ERF has been built as part of our 25 year contract for residual waste treatment signed with Oxfordshire County Council in March 2011. As well as treating household waste on behalf of OCC, the facility will also receive residual waste from local businesses and other local authorities helping them to divert their waste away from landfill. If you’re interested in speaking to somebody about using Ardley ERF please click here.

Ardley ERF was built next to an existing landfill site. In April 2014 we announced the closure of this landfill site after 35 years so that non-recyclable waste can be used as a resource at the ERF instead.

Engaging with the wider community about the need for energy recovery technology, working in partnership with the waste hierarchy to reduce, reuse and recycle waste, is important. At Ardley ERF we have built a visitor centre to encourage people to learn more about the process. Our visitor centre manager, a qualified teacher, would be happy to show you around.
