Bonnyrigg is to become home to Europe’s most advanced glass recycling infrastructure following an announcement by waste firm Viridor.
The £6million ‘next generation’ recycling infrastructure will be one of only three across the globe, with similar facilities being developed in France and Australia.
Viridor, part of the FTSE 250 Pennon Group, supports 96 per cent of Scottish local authorities, public sector organisations; businesses such as RBS, Scottish Power and Coca Cola Enterprises and many thousands of small and medium enterprises.
The company has invested some £0.5billion in green infrastructure to translate Scottish zero waste policy into practice.
The company operates an existing £3m, 100,000 tonne per annum glass recycling facility at Bonnyrigg – obtained through the acquisition of MacGlass in 2003.
