Sita UK has selected Oregon-based Bulk Handling Systems to design, manufacture and install four material recovery facilities in the UK.
The MRFs in Avonmouth, Birmingham, Darwen and South London will together process more than 250,000 tonnes of commercial recyclables per year.
Construction of the Avonmouth and Birmingham facilities will begin later this year.
SITA UK’s head of infrastructure development Ben Harding said: “These facilities will provide us with additional processing capacity in strategic areas across the UK, allowing us to improve our service offering to our customers.
“The new facilities will also lead to the creation of many jobs, both in their construction and long term operation and maintenance.”
BHS chief executive Steve Miller added: “SITA UK is the type of visionary company that we believe make the best customers for BHS. We are thrilled to be entrusted with helping them grow their business for the future.”
