Recycling Lives will be celebrating the opening of its new branch in the heart of Salford next month.
The new Recycling Lives Swinton depot will be opening officially on Friday, 1st July in a short ceremony at which key figures from government and business, including the Rt Hon Hazel Blears, MP for Salford and Eccles, are expected to attend.
Although Recycling Lives already has five branches in Preston, the new depot – based at the new Eco Park facility at Rake Lane – will be the company’s first permanent presence in Greater Manchester. The facility has been developed by Martin Ainscough, chairman of the Ainscough Group of Companies and committed philanthropist.
For the time being, the new Swinton depot will play host only to the company’s recently launched Community Dotcom services – Bulky Waste and Furniture Donation Network. These activities, which aim to generate business in Greater Manchester, will still play a key role in bringing in valuable financial support to the Recycling Lives charity.
Founder of Recycling Lives, Steve Jackson OBE said:
“The new Recycling Lives depot in Swinton will bring with it a range of opportunities. As our first centre in Greater Manchester, the site will allow us to offer our specialist services to more people and generate much needed revenues for our charity.
Now that Martin Ainscough has gift-leased us this new depot in Swinton, we’ll be able to provide better service across Greater Manchester and ensure that the environmental benefits of our innovative recycling and waste management services continue to reach more and more people.”
