Confidence in the waste and recycling market is evident at Yorwaste as the company has increased its processing capacity with a £1.2 million investment. The money has paid for two new facilities which between them add an extra 100,000 tonnes of recycling capacity.
New facilities have been built at Seamer Carr, Scarborough, and Tancred, near Catterick. At Seamer Carr, a new 1,500 sq metre facility has been built to handle construction and demolition waste as well as general recyclable material. At Tancred, a new 600 sq metre facility will handle only general recyclable materials.
Yorwaste divisional director for North Yorkshire Tim Reay said: This is a major investment for us. The increased capacity that these facilities provide is a demonstration of our confidence in the long-term market for recycled materials.
