Sheffield Waste Recycling Plant to Create Jobs

The Yorkshire Post has reported that 20 jobs will be created at a waste plastic recycling plant in Sheffield.

Kevin Parkin has successfully transformed the fortunes of several companies, and has decided to launch his own businesses. One of said businesses is R3 Products, which will treat mixed and unsorted plastics before selling it on as building products.

Mr Parkin has estimated that they “will employ 20 people within the first year of operation” before adding that the UK industry needs “to be in a position where we can compete with Chinese manufacturers.”
