Binnwaste Management have installed a third picking station at their Glenfarg recycling complex.
The £300,000 investment gives one of the country’s largest independent waste management companies the capacity to process an extra 2,000 tonnes of waste per month at Binn Farm.
The Kiverco picking station was commissioned in May and saw a further five employees join the Binnwaste Management workforce – four pickers and a machine operator.
General Manager Iain Taylor explained that the decision to invest in additional facilities would help the company reduce any recourse to landfill and offer the most cost effective and efficient service to their customers.
The new electric machine, in common with the other two picking stations, will help recycle waste from across Tayside and Fife including materials such as polythene, plastics, metal, cardboard and paper.
Binnwaste Management receive around 150,000 tonnes of materials each year and upwards of 86% of all waste is recycled in a bid to conform with the Scottish Executive’s ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’ directives.
Substantial investment and international expertise combine in one of the country’s most technologically advanced waste recycling and disposal centres now at the forefront of Scotland’s national waste strategy.
