North West’s first Trade Recycling Centre good news for businesses and the environment

The North West‟s first Trade Recycling Centre (TRC) in Haydock is now open for business making

    recycling waste easy and cost effective for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) via a fixed price bring your waste facility. The new TRC is based on the hugely successful Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) concept, which businesses cannot freely access.

    Envirolink Northwest, the organisation that supports the development and growth of the Low Carbon and Environmental Goods and Services (LCEGS) sector in the North West, has worked 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 a difficult challenge to local businesses. This facility will provide an invaluable business resource and make it so much easier for SME‟s to recycle waste, in effect it will improve the

    region‟s recycling rates. We are confident that the pilot site will be a success setting the standards for more TRCs to appear across the North West.‟

     thDesigned exclusively by Centrol Recycling Group the TRC pilot project opened on the 8 June 2010 and

    is projected to service 5000-6000 businesses in the area. Over 35 people from various sectors including local authorities, environmental services, and interested customers attended the launch event.

Rachael Oborn, Group Chairman, Centrol Recycling Group commented; “TRC sites are the only place

    where you can legally dispose of your business waste without paying a penny in „landfill tax‟. Businesses

    can now recycle over 28 different waste streams at the centre, many of which would end up in landfill sites, at a huge cost to both businesses and the environment. By offering members fixed cost recycling and flexible access, we are confident TRC will become an invaluable tool for SMEs to recycle more waste in a cost effective way.”
