Sheffield (Salmon Pastures) collections

Salmon Pastures is made up of both a main site which deals with almost all streams of commercial waste, as well as being home to a specialist glass site, with an on site glass processing plant.

Viridor Salmon Pastures is one of the most sophisticated plants in the UK, utilizing and benefiting from the latest state-of-the-art technology. A total of £6.7m has been invested in the facility in recent years.

Helped by this investment, the facility has achieved the 'End of Waste' accreditation for glass produced - an external quality standard recognising processing facilities who transfer waste material into a product and out of the waste cycle.

"I was very impressed with my visit to the glass recycling facility Viridor in Sheffield. The investment in the site not only benefits Sheffield but also other cities and business outside of Sheffield as well. Recycling is a very important issue and having modern facilities like this one allows it to be carried out in an efficient and environmentally friendly way." (Clive Betts, chair of the House of Commons Communities and Local Government Committee)
