Cuddy invests in recycling
By Lindsay Gale16 October 2014
Welsh contractor Cuddy Recycling is planning to start work in early 2015 to develop a recycling centre that will see the creation of 22 positions. The facility on the site of the former Wern Works in Briton Ferry will be partially demolished and redeveloped, subject to planning approvals, to be the sole facility able to handle timber, plasterboard and gypsum in south Wales. The investment will total £1.2 million (US$1.9 million), with £228,000 (US$364 million) coming from the Welsh Economic Growth Fund.
Cuddy Recycling’s Mike Cuddy is reported as saying: “we are making a considerable investment in the new facility and are grateful for the support of the Welsh Government. There is a real market need in Wales for a facility capable of recycling construction, demolition and earthworks waste as currently some waste products have to be transported to the Midlands in England for disposal. We are keen to introduce some very green sustainable recycling initiatives and provide a first class service for companies in Wales and parts of England. We are currently working with Natural Resources Wales to attain all the necessary environmental permits to operate a licensed waste management facility with a view to commence work in spring 2015.”
