Increased regulation ‘from overseas’ drives UK recycler to invest

UK-based Mick George Recycling has installed a new waste segregation station at the firm’s facility at Dogsthorpe, Peterborough in the east of the country.

The company, which prides itself in ‘leading the independent waste management field for over 40 years’, currently manages large volumes of waste from construction, industrial and domestic sources. The business is keen to drive down costs for existing and prospective customers in the region through increased recycling rates and landfill diversion.

Competitive market

‘Our business is ever-expanding which means we are handling more waste materials than ever before,’ says managing director Michael George. ‘In a market that is very competitive, our continued investment and innovative approach to technology allows us to provide our clients with the most efficient service.’

Quality first

‘Beyond that, regulations from overseas with regards to waste contamination levels are increasingly under scrutiny,’ the entrepreneur continues. ‘We want to do our upmost to ensure we’re supplying quality materials without sanction.’

This is the second time in as many years that Mick George has partnered with Kiverco, the recycling machinery manufacturer having already installed equipment at its St. Ives, Cambridgeshire base.
The collaboration is not due to stop there. Work is already underway on two further recycling plants at the company’s yards in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire and Great Billing, Northamptonshire.

The planned investment for the three new units is some EUR 3 million and they are scheduled to be up-and-running by mid 2019.
