40-plus jobs in the can at new Scunthorpe recycling station if planners give go-ahead
Full-time work for more than 40 people in Scunthorpe is on the way at a new recycling transfer station, if North Lincolnshire Council gives the go-ahead.
It has been earmarked for Plot 27, Brigg Road - previously used by commercial auctioneers and close to the junction with Woodhouse Road.
SITA UK is the company behind the scheme and is now seeking planning permission from North Lincolnshire Council.
It has been awarded the area's kerbside collection and recycling contract.

This involves collecting pre-sorted recyclable materials from households across North Lincolnshire, handling council-collected recyclables and transporting materials from household recycling centres.
Once collected, these materials need to be moved to a recycling transfer station so that they can be ‘bulked up’ until a sufficient load is available for transport to re-processors.
SITA UK wants to use the site on Brigg Road for this purpose.
The site was formerly an auctioneering house for industrial plant and machinery.
SITA says the proposed development will support approximately 45 jobs, contribute to the sustainable management of recyclables in North Lincolnshire and bring a vacant industrial site back into use.
