Scottish waste management company Binn Skips has undergone a rebranding and become the Binn Group to mark a shift from landfill and skip hire to a wider waste management role.
The Perthshire company was established more than 20 years ago by father and son John and Allan MacGregor as a land diversification project on their estate at Binn Farm. Binn Skips has evolved into an independent waste management operation, employing around 100 people.
Launching the new branding, chief executive Allan MacGregor, left, said the waste industry was changing rapidly and companies would eventually become commodity traders and fuel suppliers as a result of waste collection, processing and recycling operations.
“Waste is no longer something that goes to landfill - it is a valuable resource - and the country is investing tens of millions of pounds in recycling systems and waste-to-energy plants which will generate electricity for the national grid and renewable fuel for biomass boilers.
“Binn Group recognises the change in dynamic from our early days in business, and the need to develop and structure our business to meet these ongoing requirements.”
