Rotherham Residents Can Help Local Company Recycle

Beatson Clark, which has manufactured glass in Rotherham for over 260 years, has once again won the contract to manage the town’s recycling collections.

The company’s recycling plant on Greasborough Road, which employs nine people, receives 6,240 tonnes of metal, textiles and glass from the council every year, of which 4,734 tonnes are glass.The glass is recycled and used to make new bottles and jars at the Rotherham factory, while the textiles are sent to Bag It Up who support the Great Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity and metals are recycled at Morris & Co and Alutrade.Colin Saysell, Logistics Manager at Beatson Clark, commented: “We’re working with the council to encourage people to recycle more, but we also need them to understand that what goes into the boxes is just as important.“Residents can help us by only putting glass bottles and jars, metal cans and lids, and textiles and footwear in the blue box.They should not put Pyrex or pottery in as this won’t melt in our furnaces and can even cause damage and rejected bottles, wasting both glass and energy.”

Rotherham residents currently recycle almost 40% of their waste (22,638 tonnes per year), but the councillor responsible for recycling says the borough could do even better.

“Recycling should be at the centre of everyday life and I would encourage all our residents to utilise their blue box to recycle glass, cans and textiles - not Pyrex or pottery, and their blue bag for newspapers, paper and cardboard,” said Councillor Hussain, Member for Environment at Rotherham Borough Council.

“Recycling our waste not only benefits and improves the environment of Rotherham but also helps boost the town’s economy.”
