News: Recruitment continues at Rotherham waste plant


The multi-million pound waste treatment facility being built at Manvers, Rotherham is set to be commissioned early next year and be fully operational by July 2015.

The development at Brookfield's Park is designed to create material suitable for recovery and recycling and will include Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) and Anaerobic Digestion (AD) facilities.

A recruitment open day is being held for dozens of new jobs being created. Taking place at Wath Community Library on Wednesday September 17, any time between 9am and 7pm, information will be available about the positions. These include MBT multi-skilled operators, SCADA operators, MBT supervisors, and other more general roles.

Shanks Group plc, one of Europe's leading waste management businesses, joined in partnership with SSE (Scottish and Southern Energy plc) to progress plans to use three sites to treat waste including the new facility at Manvers.

Colin Fletcher, contracts director at Shanks, said: "We have made a small number of appointments to specialist positions already and are now keen to recruit the rest of the team. We need to fill a wide range of roles and we look forward to taking this major step forward and getting people on board ready for the opening next summer.

"This is an exciting new development which will revolutionise the treatment of leftover household waste from Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham."

The facility would receive up to 265,000 tonnes per annum and treat leftover household waste from Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham. The three councils secured £77m through the Private Finance Initiative for the scheme and 3SE has signed a 25 year contract worth in excess of £750m with the councils for the treatment of black bag waste.
