The company building the burner at St Dennis has reviewed its contract - after years of delays

SITA admits that is bumping up the bill for the council.

Campaigner Charmian Larke said: "It's par for the course isn't it? All the times the cost are increasing, whereas the report we had done last November showed they could save £20m a year if they dropped the PFI contract."

In a statement Cornwall Council said: "Cornwall Council and SITA UK have signed the revised project plan for the integrated waste management contract.

"The 30 year PFI contract is to manage the treatment and disposal of all of Cornwall Council’s household waste and recycling. Key to the contract is the design, build, finance and operation of an energy-from-waste facility in St Dennis with a capacity of up to 240,000 tonnes per year, which will generate electricity for the equivalent of around 21,000 homes.

"The contract was originally signed in October 2006. However, following delays in getting planning permission to build an energy-from-waste facility a contract variation was required. This has now been signed, with the funding for the Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre project being provided by a range of banks."
