Family-owned recycling business Parry & Evans has opened its new plastic recycling facility at its site in Deeside, Wales.
The ribbon to officially open the plant was cut by the local Member of the Senedd Jack Sargeant along with managing director Steve Evans and his sons Lee and Jordan Evans. A number of specially invited guests were also in attendance.
Able to take various grades of plastics, the facility will create flakes and pellets ready to be recycled into new products.
Jack Sargeant said: “It is a fantastic opportunity to increase and secure jobs in Deeside. What I’m really impressed by is the initiative from Parry & Evans. It increases opportunities to recycle with local councils, local businesses and from elsewhere.
“The climate crisis is the biggest issue we face in society. Recycling contributes to mitigating that. In Wales, we have a great recycling record, but this new facility in Wales adds to that record and I congratulate Parry & Evans for that.”
Parry & Evans operates across the UK from its sites in Welshpool and Deeside.
Steve Evans added: “As a business, we have continually invested to improve our service to customers. By constructing our plastics recycling facility, we are able to process even more material along with paper and cardboard, glass, metals and wood.
“We look forward to working with councils and businesses across the UK to process their plastics as part of the circular economy.”
