Hargreaves Buys Sheffield Tyre Recycling Plant
A UK tyre crumbing plant that went into administration recently has been purchased for £1 million, by Hargreaves Services PLC, a leading energy and waste services provider. Hargreaves Services says the plant, located in Sheffield, has an annual capacity in excess of 50,000 tonnes.
CEO Gordon Banham said: “I am delighted with the completion of the tyre crumbing acquisition to strengthen our waste services division. Tyre crumb can be sold as a useful and valuable recycled product as well as potentially being used as a coal substitute in the production of coke.”
The disposal of end-of-life tyres into landfill was banned in July.
