A vast recycling plant in Dagenham has been given the green light to expand, meaning more jobs and improved green credentials.

Closed Loop Recycling, which is currently based in Choats Road, turns over four million plastic bottles every day and is the only company in the world that recycles both plastic milk bottles and plastic water bottles back into new food and drink packaging.

It first located to the site at the London Sustainable Industries Park at Dagenham Dock in 2007, and is now to set extend its operations, opening up 40 new positions.

The announcement comes after Barking MP Margaret Hodge arranged a meeting to bring together Closed Loop Recycling with representatives from the Greater London Authority and Barking and Dagenham Council.

She commented: “It’s fantastic news and will create an extra 40 new jobs which is very welcome news for the local economy.
