NEW CASTLE — New Castle City Council has approved a land development plan for a recycling facility.

Ben Weitsman and Sons of New Castle plans to construct a facility at 526 S. Jefferson St. to recycle scrap metal. The site was formerly occupied by Pennsylvania Engineering Corp. and most recently by Ferrotech Corp.

The company expects to break ground in April, creating 60 to 70 construction jobs. It anticipates ultimately creating 40 permanent jobs.
