Recycling firm prepares for hi-tech centre

Have your say

Yorkshire-based recycling firm the Ron Hull Group has announced that it plans to create more than 20 jobs by investing £4m to create a new high-technology reprocessing centre.

The company has bought a vacant former warehousing site close to its Mangham Road base in Rotherham. Work is under way to prepare the building before the new plant and machinery is installed.

Hull Group director Mark Hull said yesterday: “The site we have acquired was originally built for Gloystarne and was later occupied by a logistics company involved in the distribution of Haribo sweets.

“Initially, the new facility will handle 75,000 tonnes of waste a year but it has the potential to process double that amount.”
