VEKA has opened a new PVC recycling centre in Cornwall, South West England
VEKA Recycling has opened a new waste PVC recycling centre in the South West of England in order to meet growing demand in the region.
As recycling volumes have grown, VEKA says it recognised the need for a permanent company presence and collection process in the South West, to cater for fabricators and installers in the region.
“We were aware that we needed another size reduction plant to enable more efficient collections,” said Simon Scholes, Business Administration Manager for VEKA Recycling. “Not only that, it also cuts down our carbon footprint being able to reduce the waste PVC material on site before we send it to our Kent facility - plus it helps us to build a sustainable and reliable business moving forward.”
The new facility, located in Indian Queens near St. Austell, was added in February of this year and follows the opening of the company’s new 18,000 sq ft Stourbridge site in the Midlands.
VEKA had previously been working with a local recycler before the opening of its new facility, whose staff have now joined the VEKA team
