A £2.5MILLION investment in a recycling plant in Purbeck has created new jobs.
SITA UK’s new materials recovery facility at Binnegar Eco Park off Puddletown Road near Wareham can accept and sort dry mixed recyclables such as cardboard, paper, plastics, cans, polythene and textiles.
Local businesses looking to improve their carbon footprint and reduce their landfill tax burden are urged to get in touch with the operators which will undertake a free waste audit for them.
SITA UK’s regional manager James Howarth said: “The local team, which includes 10 new recruits from the Wareham area, is quickly getting to grips with the new equipment and we now have a modern, reliable and fit-for-purpose facility that can help businesses put their waste to good use.
“The facility can handle 20,000 tonnes of materials per year.
“With an experienced local management team, competitive prices and also a fleet of collection vehicles we aim to attract new customers.”
