Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) processor EnvironCom has announced plans at the Recycling and Waste Management show, that it will build a new 10 acre processing facility on the outskirts of Grantham, Lincolnshire.
The new facility will be the largest in Europe and will have a £10 million investment in state of the art processing equipment for WEEE recycling, recovery and reuse.
EnvironCom chief executive Joseph Quigley said: EnvironComs new approach to e-waste has been developed and designed with feedback from both the producers of Electrical and Electronic Equipment and waste management companies, encompassing our customer needs and drawing on our own experience in this sector. This provides the most effective, efficient and economical end to end solution for retailers, producers, producer compliance schemes and waste management companies seeking the ultimate solution for WEEE.
The firm hope to replicate its plants across the UK and has plans to build a WEEE plant in London.
Quigley said that the past WEEE compliance year had been an interesting one but he said that the WEEE Regulations had yet to settle down and was still in its infancy.
