Nottingham firm to increase headcount

Wastecycle is to create 12 jobs after winning a five-year recycling contract for Nottingham City Council.

The firm will recycle material collected from households, businesses and factories in the East Midlands city.

As well as the new staff, new plant and machinery is being installed by the company at its recycling facility in Colwick, Nottingham.

The council hopes the contract will help it achieve zero waste to landfill and reduce the carbon footprint of its waste management service. 

Wastecycle recycling director Kevan Wilcockson said: “Our continued investment in new technology and jobs will strengthen our ability to offer sustainable and innovative solutions for dealing with all types of waste generated by the public and commercial sector in Nottingham.”

Councillor Alan Clark said: “This is great for the environment, reducing the amount of rubbish going to landfill, reducing the city’s carbon footprint and saving energy and money too. Reusing glass, for example, uses much less energy than creating bottles and jars from the raw materials.”
