One of the UK's largest recycling facilities to be opened in Birmingham

One of the largest recycling facilities in the UK costing £7 million is to be opened in Alridge, north of Birmingham, next year. Greenstar UK, owned by NTR UK, is constructing the 135,000 sq ft building over a 4.5 acre site. The plant will employ around 50 people when it is fully operational. Managing director Ian Wakelin said: The UK has a real deficit in recycling infrastructure, particularly in the Birmingham area, and Greenstar UK is addressing this need. The Alridge plant will utilise the best technology and equipment available in the world, and will eventually have the capacity to handle a quarter of a million tonnes of recyclable materials per year. NTR chief executive Jim Barry added: The announcement further demonstrates NTRs commitment to the renewable energy and sustainable waste management sectors across the globe.
