A new £2m recycling facility in the West Midlands is on track for completion to help the region’s councils, commercial and construction sectors meet their landfill reduction targets.
The new facility on a three-acre site at Aldridge is being built by Interserve Site Services, part of the Interserve support services and construction group.
The plant will be able to process 250,000 tonnes of waste material per year and recycle a 95% of all the material it takes.
The new plant takes the form of a large waste reception building containing the main elements of the waste handling plant that have been built on brownfield land. It also encompasses the material handling line, material storage and processing areas and a brick built administration and welfare building.
Gary Brookes, head of housing services at Walsall Housing Group, which own and manage around 19,000 homes across Walsall said: “This new facility will do much to assist us in the challenge of meeting our landfill reduction targets, and it will be good to see it in operation in January.”
- Interserve is based in the UK, has revenue of £1.9bn and a workforce of nearly 50,000 people worldwide.
