Shanks Group plc (LSE:SKS), a leading international sustainable waste management business, today announces that it has completed the sale of its Blochairn facility in Glasgow to Glasgow City Council.
The Blochairn site is located to the eastern side of Glasgow and comprises a state of the art Material Recycling Facility (MRF) and an adjacent sorting hall. The site was closed in December following the completion of the sale of Shanks’ UK solid waste collection activities to Biffa.
Peter Eglinton, Managing Director of Shanks’ UK Municipal Division, said:
“We are pleased to have been able to complete the handover of this facility on time to Glasgow City Council. We can now focus the UK business on our core municipal contracts and producing fuel for our customers.”
