Who is Britaniacrest and what operations does the company have in West Sussex?
Britaniacrest Recycling is a family business employing over 95 staff within the local area. Formed in 1993 by Ray Foss, with a wealth of knowledge and over 40 years’ experience in the haulage and waste industry to provide affordable and professional skip hire and waste management service for private and commercial customers.
 
By utilising the relatively new concepts of recycling at the time of its formation Britaniacrest has grown from strength to strength to become one of the South's leading private waste management companies.

Passionate about recycling and protecting the environment in 2009, the company re-invested to construct a modern and impressive waste transfer site. 

Further re-investment in 2013 included the purchase of two new large sites, one in Horsham, West Sussex, with a further permitted capacity of 230,000 tonnes per year and a sand quarry in Storrington, West Sussex. Britaniacrest currently quarry various sand products for the resale in the construction industry and import inert waste for the restoration of this site to form a country park.
How many people will the 3Rs facility employ?
The project will create around 300 jobs during construction, and about 40 new permanent roles within the plant during operation.  In addition to this, the plant will take on apprentices. There will also be a major uplift in demand for local accommodation and catering especially during construction - giving a boost to local businesses.
