Anglian Water - Waste Recycling Centre

An update from Anglian Water on works which is impacting the Water Recycling Centre near the village next to the M1.

Our Water Recycling Centre based at Great Billing is under-going essential maintenance which will allow this site to run more safely and efficiently. During this time, we have had to change our processes at the site near the M1 which may result in increased odours. This work will continue until October, after which things will return to normal.

In the meantime, to ensure that we continue to act as good and responsible neighbours within our region, we are exploring further ways to help reduce the odours from our Water Recycling Centre near Whilton and Long Buckby. Hot weather, which we’ve seen this year, can increase the likelihood of odours from wastewater. The nature of the work we do means that odours sometimes occur and we work hard to minimise any instances wherever we possibly can. We already have odour control systems and suppressants on site which are monitored regularly, and we have put further improvement measures in place at the site whilst this work is continuing. Residents are encouraged to contact Anglian Water when the smell is noticeable by calling 03457 145 145.

Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding whilst we get things back to normal,

Kind regards,
