The dramatic rise in recycling has been attributed to the Scottish Borders becoming a landfill-free area in July 2019 after the procurement of a new residual waste contract. Levenseat Limited was awarded the contract, which involves the transport and treatment of the 42k tonnes of residual waste produced in the Borders each year.
We have now moved into the next stage of the commissioning journey and as part of the phased commissioning programme the Levenseat Power Plant has achieved operational takeover.
Levenseat, in partnership with Fauldhouse and Breich Valley Development Trust (F&BV CDT), recently ran a competition to design a litter free campaign. We asked local children and young people to use their imagination to come up with a catchy slogan and an engaging poster that can be used to promote the message of keeping your community tidy and free from litter.
Levenseat has launched its first ever graduate training programme, the initiative is a 1 year programme and will start with a placement within each department before provide in-depth training in the following areas: Engineering Design, regulatory knowledge, business development, commercial knowledge, project/business management.
