WSR Recycling, a commercial and industrial (C&I) waste recycler, has launched a tender for the design and installation of a new recycling facility, which could see it double the amount of waste it processes.
The new facility will add to the firm’s existing recycling facility that is designed for construction and demolition (C&D) waste. Currently, WSR treats 60,000 tonnes of waste each year, but once the new facility is up and running, as much as 120,000 to 130,000 tonnes could go through the site each year.
Director Nick Prescott hopes the new facility will improve the company’s operations. He said: “The current equipment does the job well but we hope a new facility designed specifically for C&I waste will help with more automation.
“We want a new plant that can cope with around 100,000 tonnes a year, so it is big enough to allow for growth and expansion. The nature of the industry has changed in recent years with more of a shift towards C&I waste rather than C&D waste.”
WSR is currently looking at expressions of interest which show an innovative approach and an experienced track record.
