This story is over

Scunthorpe-based Recycle Solar Technologies, the UK’s only solar PV recycling service, is on track to expand after receiving a £1,000 grant from the UK Steel Enterprise (UKSE) Kickstart Fund.

The UKSE grant, which has funded the legal fees and environmental compliance procedures associated with a young business, has also allowed Recycle Solar Technologies to invest in a website, expanding its reach and engaging new customers.

Founded in December 2016, Recycle Solar Technologies recovers and recycles solar equipment from across the UK and Ireland.

Having recently moved into a 50,000 sq ft premises in Scunthorpe, which includes an extensive outdoor storage area, Recycle Solar Technologies has plans for growth, hoping to increase the size of their team three-fold over the next three years.

Dave Ellse, Marketing Director at Recycle Solar Technologies, said: “The funding from UKSE has been instrumental to our expansion as we are already seeing how the new website can attract custom and raise awareness across the UK of our unique services.”

Alan Stanley, from UKSE added: “We are proud to have supported Recycle Solar Technologies and wish them the best of luck in their new premises.

“It’s great to see that they have chosen North Lincolnshire as their permanent location and we look forward to following their journey as their business develops.”
