Scottish aggregates recycler opened

A recycling facility that can produce over 92,000 tonnes of high quality aggregates every year opened in Scotland last week.

The Eagle Recycling facility in Denny, Stirlingshire was built thanks to a £419,475 capital grant from the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP).

It will produce over 56,000 tonnes of recycled aggregates from construction, demolition and excavation waste in its first year of operation, before moving on to its capacity output in following years.

WRAP's grant helped to part-fund its construction, money that WRAP awarded on behalf of the Scottish Executive.

The executive has put aside £3 million until 2007 to stimulate the production and use of quality recycled and secondary aggregates in Scotland.

According to WRAP director of materials Liz Goodwin, the project won the grant because of its inclusion of a washing plant as part of the facility, which will allow Eagle Recycling to produce aggregates that sell for a higher price.

She added: "Eagle's new facility is a great example of the type of project that WRAP looks to fund - where a sophisticated grading and washing plant can produce a range of added value products."
