Graduates looking for an ethical job in the Scunthorpe area may be interested to know that a recycling firm has announced new positions.
AbitibiBowater Recycling Europe has signed a contract with North Lincolnshire County Council to collect and deal with any plastic and cardboard left in burgundy bins, and five new jobs, which could be taken up by graduates, have been announced.
Running until 2011, the contract will provide a jobs boost to the local economy as well as allowing 70,000 homes in Scunthorpe to take advantage of recycling facilities to improve their carbon footprint.
Len Foster, cabinet member for neighbourhood and environment at the council, said: "By awarding this contract to them, we are helping to provide new jobs for people in the area, as the sorting and transfer of the materials collected will be carried out by a local company."
The South Yorkshire Star recently reported that Rotherham firm Sterecycle is building five new plants across the UK, which will provide a slew of new jobs, which could be taken up by graduates.
