Work going well on recycling site

Have your say

Work is under way on the main site of a new South Yorkshire waste treatment plant.

And progress on the development at Bolton Road, Manvers, Rotherham, is on course, despite the winter’s extreme weather conditions.

The scheme is the result of joint working between Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham councils.

Coun Richard Russell, Joint Waste Board chairman, said: “This is the end result of innovative partnership working between Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham.

“Huge amounts of household waste from across the three boroughs will be diverted from landfill and turned into solid recovered fuel with guaranteed high levels of recycling.”

Nigel Catling, capital infrastructure director of Shanks UK, who are carrying out the work, said: “We are proud to be delivering on this project.”
