A joint venture between ECO Plastics and Coca – Cola enterprises has been awarded a top accolade at a high-status regional awards ceremony.
The fbe East Midlands Awards 2012 honour construction projects around the region and Continuum Recycling (the venture between the aforementioned pair) has been recognised as playing an important role in the recycling and drinks manufacturing industries. The £15,000 Continuum facility was selected as the best project in the Lincolnshire Scheme and Team category. It was said that it was the best fund-raising and merger in the past twelve months.
The purpose-built facility reprocesses used plastic bottles and the materials produced are then re-used to make new Coca-Cola bottles. As well as jobs being created, the partnership has also helped the local economy which has been in free-fall for a time.
After being quizzed about the prestigious award, ECO Plastics managing director said that it was great that the company had been recognised.
Many people in the industry now hope that the success of this venture will lead to more companies starting up and will also lure more investment and growth potential. Many hope that the UK’s input into recycling continues to grow as well.
The operation is being run from Hemswell near Gainsborough.
