South Mimms IVC Facility

Our South Mimms IVC facility is home to a long term contract with Hertfordshire County Council. The plant can process up to 48,000 tonnes of organic waste per year and has strong environment credentials. The plant’s IVC tunnels are constructed from a unique gore membrane that reduces the plant power requirements to approximately one third of those needed by conventional plants.

The facility can accept source segregated commingled food and garden waste. The site diverts organic waste from landfill and produces a valuable organic compost fertiliser. Wastes that can be treated in the facility, include:

  • Source segregated green garden waste

A very wide spectrum of green waste can be processed including plant cuttings, weeds, grass and hedge cuttings, cut flowers, and branches no larger than 7.5cm in diameter. We are unable to accept Japanese knotweed, ragwort, soil or treated wood.

  • Source segregated commingled food and green waste

All raw and cooked food waste commingled with green garden waste.

Our compost products meet strict feedstock and end product specifications and are suitable for use on organic farms. They are currently sold in bulk quantities of 100 tonnes or more.
