Stockport-based Elsa Recycling Group has submitted a planning application to expand operations to a neighbouring site.
The recycling group proposes expanding its operations from its Station Road base in Reddish into neighbouring Climax Works, which the group acquired in 2019. Elsa Recycling Group currently handles 700 tonnes of paper and card recycling per week, and has operated from its current site in Stockport for 20 years.
In order to operate more effectively, the firm plans to redevelop both sites to improve on-site circulation of vehicles and increase storage capacity, allowing the recycling group to operate more efficiently, and reduce its impact on nearby roads.
Greg Humphreys, Managing Director at Elsa Recycling Group said:
Our investment and plans are designed to ensure that the important recycling service we provide can operate more efficiently, safely and with less impact, helping us become better neighbours in the local community.”
Manchester-based P4 Planning submitted the planning applications to Stockport Council on behalf of Elsa Recycling Group. Rhian Thomas, Associate at the firm, commented:
The plans greatly improve the existing operation and will bring significant improvements to neighbouring local residents. Planning approval will enable Elsa to invest in its future development which will benefit the whole area and continue to assist sustainable waste efforts across the North West.”
Other firms consulting on the plans include M’GRA and SKTP Transport Consultants.
