Accompanied by the previous High Sheriff Robert Bland and Mrs Bland, Annabel and I visited the Battlefield Energy Recovery Centre. The tour was led Donald Macphail (Regional Director – Midlands), supported by Steve Mitchell (Director – Midlands/West), Simon Ganley (ERF Plant Manager) and Hilary Hampton (Communications and Education Manager). The scale and sophistication of the operation is impressive as is the energy output that provides electricity for up to ten thousand homes. The operation puts Shropshire at the leading edge of waste management in the UK.
