Investment repays with new jobs and record year for Recycled UK

Posted on 12 Nov 2013

A Black Country recycling specialist’s faith in a bonded warehouse and new equipment has been repaid with a record year and the creation of 10 new jobs.

Recycled UK, which employs 28 people at its Cannon Business Park site in Coseley, has increased sales by more than £1 million in 2013 and is now processing and securely destroying over 30 tonnes of CDs, DVDs and video games per week for blue chip organisations from the entertainment sector.

Bosses at the firm believe its decision to spend £150,000 on the specialist bonded warehouse, twelve picking stations and baling machines has given it the advantage over other rivals in its field.

The company has invested a further £50,000 into an automated shredder and baler, which means that once the item intended for destruction has entered the process it never leaves the track.
