Newhouse Glass Recycling Facility.

 

Viridor has completed a £1 million upgrade of its Scottish glass recycling plant and has secured a Scottish Procurement contract covering five Scottish local authorities and a total estimated annual tonnage of 10,500.

Viridor Resource Management (VRM) Managing Director Keith Trower said Viridor had completed the £1 million upgrade of its £25m facility in Newhouse, near Motherwell  – one of the UK’s most advanced glass recycling facilities – as part of Viridor’s commitment to meeting the high quality cullet standards required by Scottish bottlemakers and to achieving Viridor’s circular economy goals.

Paul Brown, Viridor’s Managing Director of Recycling and Integrated Assets, said the contract win was “a significant step in ensuring the company was able to supply the level of feedstock needed by the Scottish remelt sector, especially to address increasing demand in the whisky and gin sector.”

The two-year contract, with two one-year extensions, covers Angus, Dundee, Perth & Kinross, Scottish Borders and West Lothian and gives each authority the option of either delivering the glass or to use Viridor’s haulage.

Angus, Dundee, Perth and Kinross and West Lothian service began on 2 April, Scottish Borders will join on 1 May, 2019.
