North Tyneside Council
After visiting J&B’s processing facilities and experiencing the level of automation and quality of the materials produced for future markets, North Tyneside Council was impressed with the service and operation at J&B Recycling.
Colin MacDonald, Senior Manager of Technical and Regulatory Services at North Tyneside Council, said: “We have been impressed by the extent of the technology J&B deploys at its MRF with the early signs being that we are now being able to extract even better value from our materials than before.
“We were able to make the transition to the new contract with ease. Our experiences of early relationship-building has been positive – there is a real commitment to developing a partnership approach which is meeting the promises made during the contract tender stage.”
In order to service part of the contract, J&B has also invested £104k to increase its fleet of vehicles and walking floor trailers.
Vikki Jackson-Smith, Managing Director at J&B Recycling, said: “This is a key milestone for J&B and continues our expansion in the north of the region.”
We’re looking forward to working with North Tyneside Council in terms of best practice, looking at improvements to the service and being proactive on waste awareness.”
