A new state of the art In-Vessel Composting facility constructed by Britcon for recycling company Biowise, also trading as Wastewise, has been opened by Lord Haskins.
Over a hundred guests joined Lord Haskins and Biowise management at the opening event, including representatives from Britcon, local businesses, funding organisations, local authorities and children from Willerby Carr Lane Primary school.
James Landau, managing director at Biowise, said:
It is an amazing day and great to see the culmination of all our efforts come together after years of planning. We are very happy to have so many people here to view the facility and see it officially opened. Our thanks go to Lord Haskins and to all those who have helped make this a reality.
This facility will help address the shortage of waste treatment facilities in the area and mean that a large percentage of the area’s waste will now be managed locally, assisting the region in meeting its recycling targets.
Lord Haskins, chairman of the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership and former chairman of Northern Foods, cut the ribbon with the help of Jessica Middleton and James Adamson from Willerby Carr Lane Primary school and declared the facility constructed by Britcon officially open.
