Work underway at Coventry materials recycling facility
Steelwork erection is underway at Sherbourne Recycling’s site in Coventry, where Clegg Group has begun constructing a 175,000 tonnes per annum state-of-the-art materials recycling facility (MRF).
The MRF will include a large L-shaped propped portal framed structure that will house the majority of the processing equipment. Caunton Engineering is fabricating, supplying and erecting 500t of steel for this building.
Described as an MRF of the future, the facility will be the first of its kind to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the core of its system to allow real-time interconnectivity between the main sorting equipment.
Sherbourne Recycling was established in April 2021 for the purpose of operating and maintaining the new regional materials recycling facility on behalf of its eight local authority shareholders, made up of Coventry, North Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Bedworth, Rugby, Solihull, Stratford, Walsall and Warwick.
