And to mark the milestone at the Greatmoor energy from waste plant, £10,000 is being donated to charity, split between Buckingham, Winslow & District Citizens Advice Bureau, Willen Hospice and Miles for Men.

Work by construction firm Hitachi Zosen INOVA started in September 2013 and at its peak the site employed 550 workers.

It is scheduled to open officially in spring 2016, employing 46 full time operatives working for FCC Environment.
