Tours, Waste, Energy & Environmental Workshops

MVV Environment Baldovie–Energy from Waste Plant

In November 2017, MVV entered a contract with Dundee City and Angus Councils to manage their residual waste (that is waste left over after recyclable materials have been removed). The new facility which started operations in Dundee in January 2022 provides a more environmentally sustainable waste treatment solution for the Councils by minimising the amount of waste going to landfill.  

MVV will be hosting site tours and waste, energy and environmental workshops. If this is something you are interested in, contact the Community Liaison Manager by emailing: or through their website:

Climate Change & Business

Adaptation Scotland help public sector, businesses and communities to understand what climate change will mean across Scotland, and identify the best way for them to plan for the future.  

Adapting to climate change will be necessary regardless of how much we manage to cut our carbon emissions. This is because historic emissions have already changed our climate and will continue to do so in the decades to come.
