New innovative integrated site coming to Yorkshire!

An environmental consultancy, Urban Mines, has urged recycling companies to register their interests in an innovative site that will have reprocessing and recycling businesses working side by side. The site, located near Barnsley in West Yorkshire, consist of 22 acres of reclaimed land. It will house various industrial units, forming a centre for commercial resource recovery and recycling. Urban Mines managing director Peter Scholes said: The plan is that the site, next door to the proposed waste treatment facilities for Wakefield MDC waste services, will attract recycling or reprocessing companies who need recycled materials to process or have had problems getting planning permission for their facilities elsewhere. In the rest of the world, Japan and Spain have similar developments called eco sites. As a nation this is probably the first of its type. Urban Mines is hoping that the development will have a significant profile as a centre for innovative waste management and recycling in the UK. By bringing waste treatment, recycling and reprocessing companies together, we are able to exploit synergies between the different operations. For instance, a plastics recycler we are talking to, is interested in taking plastic bottles for reprocessing into new products, from the municipal recycling facilities next door, added Scholes.
