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 is keen to 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.
North Lincolnshire Council has imposed planning conditions in granting permission.
Material to be handled on the site is restricted to pre-sorted household recyclable materials, including glass, cans, plastic, paper and cardboard.
No other waste materials shall be accepted on the site without the prior written permisson of North Lincolnshire Council.
Site opening hours will be restricted to 7am to 7pm, Monday to Friday; 7am to 5pm, Saturday.
No operations will be permitted on Sundays and bank holidays.
SITA issued further information to the Scunthorpe Telegraph today (Wednesday).
It says the proposed development will support 37 jobs, contribute to the sustainable management of recyclables in North Lincolnshire and bring a vacant industrial site back into use.
The jobs include 24 employees that have been carried over from PDL – who previously held the contract, nine agency staff from PDL who have been given full-time contracts, two drivers who were already employed by SITA and two new jobs – including a contracts manager and an administrator.
A SITA spokesman said the drivers will start collecting recyclable materials from Monday, November 5.
