In August 2008 Worcestershire County Council’s Head of Environmental Services described the construction of a massive incinerator plant a “distinct possibility” as it is the favoured option of Mercia/Severn, with whom they have a 25 year waste contract. Worcestershire and Herefordshire councils signed a 25-year waste contract in 2001 with Mercia Waste Management, to be delivered by its sister company Severn Waste Services. Mercia failed in 2002 with their plans for an incinerator in Kidderminster. The sites currently being considered have yet to be revealed.
