Lyme and Wood Pits

The Lyme and Wood Pits landfill site started to generate electricity in December 2005. The site at Haydock in Merseyside is owned by Cory Environmental. As part of our ongoing development of the site there are now four engines installed at the site which can generate 6,000kW of renewable energy by burning landfill gas. This is enough to supply the equivalent of 11,400 homes.
