Farrans Construction bags recycling hub contract in south west England

Farrans Construction has been awarded a £39 million contract to build a recycling centre in south west England.

The Keynsham Recycling Hub project has been awarded to the Belfast-based building firm by Bath and North East Somerset Council and the site is based between Bath and Bristol.

The development will see the construction of a site designed to make it easier for residents to recycle and help reduce general waste and operational costs.

Works have commenced on site which will include a modern recycling centre, a reuse shop for people to donate items for reuse and resale, an MOT centre and an education centre.

Glenn Gilmore, Regional Director at Farrans, welcomed the contract.

“We are pleased to be growing our logistics and waste management portfolio in England,” he said. “Farrans bring a strong organisational approach to responsibly managing our environmental footprint across site operations and value chain. This project will see the delivery of new innovative methods providing a high quality environmentally friendly solution to the Council’s asset.”

Councillor David Wood, cabinet member for Neighbourhood Services, said he was pleased with the progress made on site to date.

“Keynsham Recycling Hub is an ambitious project which includes a raft of innovative measures that will help us to tackle the climate and ecological emergencies,” he said. “It will be transformational, expanding public recycling provision while future-proofing our service and meeting the need for household waste and recycling and kerbside collections now and in the future. I’m looking forward to coming back and seeing the construction progress.”
