12 jobs created at Enderby recycling plant

Bakers Waste, the waste management company with premises in Granite Close, Enderby, has created 12 jobs after opening a new recycling plant.

The company reportedly spent £250,000 setting up the ‘picking line’ at its Enderby site.

The plant segregates building materials to be re-used by the construction industry and will be able to handle up to 50,000 tonnes of waste a year, with 65 per cent recycled.

Business development manager Judith Hollingworth told the Leicester Mercury newspaper that the firm hoped to take on another 18 staff at the site during the next twelve months, adding that the company was seeing “high demand”.

Bakers Waste was founded in 2000 by Paul Baker and had a turnover of about £6.5 million in the year to September 30. The company, which employs about 80 people, acquired the Enderby site after taking over Glenfield Waste in 2009.

It lists among its clients Aggregate Industries, of Bardon, Leicester City FC and Leicester Tigers.

Mr Baker was named Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2010 Leicestershire Business Awards, in association with the Leicester Mercury. The company also operates plants in Nottingham, Derby an Coventry.
