Hull-based Biowise to create eight jobs at new £7m composting plant
Yorkshire recycling company Biowise is creating jobs with a new composting facility in Crewe, Cheshire.
The Hull-based business secured planning consent for a £7m composting plant that will process food and garden waste from 370,000 people in the area.
Eight full-time staff will be taken on at the scheme, which Biowise will operate to serve a 15-year deal with Cheshire East Council.
Biowise operations and development director Bob Wilkes said: “The development of this advanced composting facility represents the culmination of a two-year process of careful design and negotiation with Cheshire East Council officers and their advisors.
“Through this forward thinking and collaborative process, Cheshire East Council is providing a long-term, environmentally-friendly solution to their residents, utilising state-of the-art technology to produce a fantastic quality assured PAS 100 compost product from mixed garden and food waste.”
He added: “We are delighted to be a part of that process and excited about the prospect of working together in the future.”
Cllr Don Stockton, the council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We are delighted that Biowise has come up with an efficient, sustainable and low-cost solution to recycle food waste.
“They have done a great job in successfully satisfying the strict planning application requirements.”
He continued: “This new composting plant will process food and garden waste together and will help us to further improve our recycling rates, which are currently better than the majority of councils across England.
“We are determined to further improve these rates so that we are among the very best in the country. We look forward to working with Biowise and building a strong partnership into the future.”
