Northern Ireland gets new ELV facility

Erin Recyclers of Kinlough in the Irish Republic has formed a new end-of-life vehicle (ELV) waste company in Northern Ireland.

Londonderry-based Foyle Recyclers, it said, will recover, recycle and sell ELV materials such as metal, plastics, batteries, rubber and engine fluids and is expected to employ 16 by the end of 2007.

According to the parent company, Foyle Recyclers and its Londonderry Port operation will be the first authorised treatment site of its type in Northern Ireland. Erin Recyclers added that the deep water facilities at the port would enable it to use larger ships to transport scrap materials to customers in Continental Europe.

Erin Recyclers director Desmond Foley said: "The new company will provide an ELV service not currently available in the north west of Ireland, and will enable the region to meet increasingly exacting European Union recycling targets for materials from scrap vehicles during 2006."
