Work began at the end of March on the development of the North West’s first Trade Recycling Centre (TRC) in Haydock that will provide small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) with a viable, cost effective opportunity to recycle their waste via a chargeable bring facility.
Envirolink Northwest, the organisation that supports the development and growth of the energy and environmental technologies and services (ETS) sector in the North West, will work on the WRAP supported project as part of a consortium with Centrol Recycling Group and Gordon Mackie Associates.
The pilot TRC project will help users tackle the many barriers to recycling trade waste through a bespoke recycling centre.
Amy Glover, Business Development Manager, Envirolink Northwest said: "The disposal of trade waste has traditionally presented local businesses with some difficulties. Lack of capacity, opportunity and incentive has discouraged the practice of trade recycling however the development of facilities such as these will improve the region’s recycling rates. We are confident that the pilot site will be a success and we hope that this will be the first of many to appear across the North West."
Designed exclusively by Centrol Recycling Group the TRC pilot project will be operational in early June and is projected to service 5000-6000 businesses in the area.
Rachael Oborn, Group Chairman, Centrol Recycling Group commented; “By offering fixed cost recycling and a 7 day site opening we are confident TRC will become an invaluable tool for SMEs to recycle more waste in a cost effective way.”
