Cireco are proud to partner with Yes Recycling on a new facility in Glenrothes. Opening in late October, the facility will recycle 15,000 tonnes of low-grade post-consumer plastic per annum. The factory will divert low-grade plastics that would otherwise have gone to landfill, into high-strength Ecosheet, an alternative to plywood. The plant will create 60 jobs and feature new state-of-the-art patented recycling technology.
Cireco will provide the majority of the recycling material for the factory from it’s contracts with local authorities and its own commercial waste collections in Fife.
Robin Baird, Chief Executive Officer for Cireco (Scotland) LLP said:
"We are delighted to have been chosen by Yes Recycling to deliver this innovative new project. Yes and Cireco has shared values in ensuring that previously hard to recycle plastics can now become valuable resources and help support Scotland's circular economy delivery. This continues Cireco goals of ensuring that Fife continues to be seen as open to innovation in the delivery and expansion of the green economy."
Omer Kutluoglu, Co-Founder and Director of Yes Recycling, commented:
“Opportunities are limitless for the recycling industry in Scotland, with local authority and government guidance focusing on making a change for the better. Investment in change is evident across Scotland, and for us, Fife is the ideal location for our first plant of this kind."
