SCA Recycling expands

Kent-based paper recovery company, SCA Recycling, is to expand its operations beyond paper recycling and move into a wider range of materials with the development of a materials recycling facility (MRF) in Southampton.

The MRF will recover plastics, metal cans and glass from industrial and commercial sectors, and from local authority sources. It will also have the capacity to process 200,000 tonnes of dry recyclables per annum.

Managing director Ken Stevens said: This is a significant strategic move by SCA. It will allow us to develop quality partnerships to ensure our new and existing customers can make the best of a new era of developing resources from waste.

This will enhance the ability of SCA to compete successfully where customers place high demands on sustainability. Recycling has become an essential part of everyday life and the UK desperately needs merchant facilities to meet the growing requirement for cost effective, sustainable alternatives to landfill.

The firm hopes to have the Southampton MRF up and running by summer 2009.
