Celtic Recycling is delighted to confirm that our development at Queensway Meadows, Newport is well underway and currently ahead of schedule for completion during the middle of April.

Located just off Junction 24 of the M4, the Newport site will complement our existing operations in Pyle, Bridgend and Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Development of the 4.1 acre site includes the construction of two new industrial units, a security lodge and weighbridge. A dedicated access road from the public highway will lead directly to a new 10,000 sq. ft. heavy load bay installed with 2 x 63 tonne gantry cranes each fitted with 20 tonne auxiliary hoists; plus a 5,000 sq. ft. processing/storage area, and additional hot work facilities which historically have been undertaken exclusively at Pyle, Bridgend.

Other on site facilities will include:

  • 24 hour site security
  • Laboratory
  • SF6 processing area
  • Additional 13,500 sq. ft. warehouse capacity equipped with 20 tonne gantry crane

This is an extremely important project for Celtic Recycling, and this significant investment underpins our expansion plans as well as demonstrating our commitment to providing the industry with innovative recycling and waste management solutions.

Celtic Recycling is extremely proud of what has been accomplished to date, particularly during the current economic climate. We believe that our success is a direct result of our passionate belief in providing excellent, innovative customer service, together with a focus on the personal development of our people, as well as our no compromise approach to legal observance, particularly in matters relating to health, safety and environmental compliance all of which are of paramount importance within our industry.

As the company approaches its 20th anniversary of trading, we will continue to explore opportunities to develop our existing portfolio of services with a view to addressing the future needs of our customers, ensuring that we maintain our position as the market leader within our sector.

Celtic Recycling – Expansion into new state of the art facility

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

We are pleased to announce that Phase 1 of the development is due to be operational at the beginning of September with the administrative side of the business already operational (new office space). The newly refurbished warehouse boasts warehousing space of 20,000 square feet, most of which benefits from a combined overhead crane capacity of up to 26 tonnes.  The Newport facility has the capacity to store up to 40,000 litres of waste oil for recycling.  All processing activities take place indoors reducing any impact on the environment.

We are soon to take delivery of a number of new gas powered Fork Lift Trucks which are recorded to have zero waste emissions through a recycling valve system which prevents the release of unburned gas.  We try to reduce the impact we have on the local environment where ever possible.

Brand new state of the art offices and high-tec training room underlines the company’s proven commitment to the training and development for all staff. 

Celtic Recycling’s continuous development of skills and experience is one of the reasons that Celtic Recycling has such a commendable record in Health and Safety. 

Storage, dismantling and recycling will be just some of the services on offer at the Newport site. We would however, be more than happy to listen to customer needs with regards to hazardous and non-hazardous waste recovery and disposal. 

Planning permission for phase 2 is close to being granted which will see additional warehouse space for processing large electrical equipment with crane capacity of up to 120 tonnes. Queensway Meadows Industrial Estate is strategically located near Junction 24 of the M4, with excellent road links to the motorway network.
