Cameron pays a visit to Sims Newport facility

Sims UK Newport facility opened its doors to David Cameron and presented the plans for its future to him before Christmas. The Conservative party leader took a tour of the Newport recycling facility and was given a low down on future developments of the site. This included discussing the £8 million, 12 acre purpose built Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling facility which is planned for the site. Sims UK managing director Tom Bird said: I was delighted to host David Cameron and show him the Newport plans. Mr Cameron showed great knowledge with regard to recycling and its importance in fighting climate change and easing the burden on landfill. He was also impressed and excited with the plans that Sims has, not just for this facility but for the future of recycling in the UK. The company hope that the addition of the WEEE facility means it will be able to recycle over 100,000 tonnes of WEEE such as old TVs and computers per annum.
