A multi-million pound recycling plant could be creating 600 new jobs.

Midwest Polychem is planning to create an innovative recycling facility on a recently bought 64 acre site and wants people from this area to fill the roles.

Once fully operational, the state-of-the-art plant will need 600 employees in a number of different roles - and the company is committed to giving something back to the community.

The planned facility, which is currently in the consultation period, will be sited on the land close to the Sutton Bridge Power Station.

Rana Nayaz of Midwest Polychem said: “We want the community to know that we are here for them.

“Once fully operational, there will be 600 jobs available and they will be in a number of different roles, from labourers and forklift drivers to machinery operators and plant maintenance people.

“While this is a facility which will be using the latest technology, we will need someone behind the computer to make sure it is all running properly - we need that human presence.

“We also want to offer apprenticeships and we will need lots of office staff.

“We have already done a similar thing with our Holbeach site which is staffed completely by local people.”

The company has recently opened a recycling plant on an 8.5 acre site in Holbeach which has created around 60 jobs.

Although it is not yet operational, this site has the capacity to produce 3,000 tonnes of hot washed plastic flakes per month which will then be sold on the manufacturers to be repurposed.

Mr Nayaz is also adamant that this second and much larger facility, which will cost millions to build and develop, will not use an incinerator.

He said; “We will be using the very latest technologies but we will never burn anything, there will be no smoke, no chimneys and no smell.

“There also will not be any smell from food waste as we use a specious procedure to ensure this. We use reverse engineering which removes the elements and puts it back to its natural form.”

South Holland District Council and Lincolnshire County Councillor Jack Tyrrell will be using a ‘couple’ of acres on the site to offer a new tip.
