Waste management company WSR Recycling has announced a £4m expansion programme to more than double the capacity of its waste recovery site in Widnes, Cheshire.
The company focuses on waste processing, and will include an additional 100,000-tonne waste recovery plant as part of the investment. This will create a double waste facility and increase the company’s total processing capacity to more than 200,000 tonnes a year.
Managing director Mark Trousdale said: “The three main objectives driving the investment are time, quality and innovation. We want to deliver cost-effective and efficient waste processing services that set a new standard both in terms of technique and the recovery rates that can be achieved.”
WSR is also proposing to purchase Leibherr and Doppstadt materials handlers, and expects the investment programme to be completed in nine months.
The announcement follows the sale of the company’s commercial trade collection routes to B&M Waste Services in June.
