BBC Radio Scotland interview Ecosurety about new UK battery recycling plant

Operations director Paul Timmins was interviewed live on the John Beattie current affairs program

The interview also featured John Molyneux, Head of communications and engagement at Zero Waste Scotland, to discuss the new battery recycling plant planned in Kilwinning, near Glasgow. 

The recycling plant is opening thanks to a partnership between Ecosurety and Belmont Trading UK Limited, a global leader in secure and sustainable reuse and recycling solutions, and will see the UK processing its own battery waste before the end of the year (see previous press release here). 

The ten minute interview explored why it is so important to recycle batteries, the positive impact the first UK recycling plant will have and the ever increasing level of battery usage in modern technology. You can listen to the interview below:
