Birmingham-based recycling company Premier Waste UK has been awarded a contract from Taylor Woodrow Construction to help make neighbourhoods in Sandwell cleaner and greener.
Premier Waste is working with TWC, a partner in Sand-well Homes £450 million Decent Homes regeneration project that will see the Council's housing stock refurbished and modernised.
Premier Waste is recycling up to 88 per cent of the waste resulting from upgrading 10,000 homes during the five-year project.
Sandwell Homes has forged a partnership with three major contractors on 30,000 council homes, improving kitchens, bathrooms, central heating systems and other works.
Brian Price, project director at TWC, said: "Since the project began a year ago we have carried out improvement work worth £6.7 million including installing 491 new kitchens, 414 new bathrooms, 154 full heating systems, 155 new roofs and rewiring 566 homes.
It is good to know that most of the waste this has generated won't end up on a landfill site and will be recycled."
Damian Courtney, managing director of Premier Waste, said: "We are continually investing our resources to create efficient markets for recycled materials and products. "Our state-of-the-art recycling plant is able to minimise waste and maximise recycling and re-use of the bathrooms and kitchens removed from the Sandwell properties."
Premier Waste's £5 million materials recycling facility at Perry Barr in Birmingham can handle up to 800 tonnes of waste every day segregating materials such as waste brick, wood, plastics and aggregates and recycling most of it.
Peter Cashmore, partner-ship manager for Sandwell Homes, said: "One of our top priorities is to create a safe, clean and tidy environment for all our tenants and residents in Sandwell.
"Boosting recycling reduces the reliance on landfill and has environmental and economic benefits for the community."
