United Kingdom-based demolition and waste management company R Collard is to open a metal recycling facility in Wokingham in the south of England.
The company said the move will complement its existing waste recycling operation and expand its recycling capabilities.
By bringing the processing of metal waste in-house, it will also have greater control of the process.
The facility gives R Collard the capacity to recycle metal from its own in-house demolition projects, from the wastes tipped at its five Material Recycling Facilities (MRFs) and its skip hire customers.
It will now be able to manage the recycling of ferrous and non-ferrous metals including all types of aluminium and copper with equipment including a metals shredder and a baler for compressing and materials reprocessing.
“This is our first step into the world of metal recycling,” said Robert Collard, founder and managing director.
“It is a fantastic opportunity which complements the waste infrastructure and demolition requirements for the group”.
