Butler welcomes new state-of-the-art recycling facility

23 November, 2009

Sinn Féin MLA Paul Butler for Lagan Valley has welcomed the opening of a new state-of-the art recycling facility on the outskirts of West Belfast. 

“The location of this recycling facility on the outskirts of Belfast is a major investment in the local area. This recycling centre will go a long way to helping the north of Ireland meet its recycling targets. 

“At a cost of £6 million this facility is using the very latest technology to divert garden and food waste from landfill to produce high quality compost that can be sold in garden centres and used at some of our leading golf courses.”

Paul Butler continued

“I am also pleased that it is providing local jobs for people given the present economic climate and that local school children will be able to visit the facility and learn about recycling.”
