Paper recycler makes £3m plastics move

A £3 million investment has seen paper reprocessor Baylis Recycling gain a licence to recycle plastics.

The firm has gained Environment Agency accreditation for the activity after spending the money on a plastics recycling facility at its Berkshire base.

The company is already making use of its status, taking waste plastic from local authorities and private collections.

It is selling the material in compound form to plastics manufacturers to make new products with.

Baylis has made several investments as part of its strategy for growth. These include the installation of a secure paper-shredding Vecoplan machine capable of processing up to 5 tonnes per hour.

It has also bought a paper, plastic and cardboard-baling facility with a capacity of 8 tonnes per hour and a calibrated weighbridge facility.

Managing director Chris Baylis said: "Our new plant supports our objective to provide a one-stop quality service to the private and public sectors.

"New legislative demands from both Westminster and Brussels are moving recycling rapidly up the management agenda, and our industry must respond with more effective solutions."
