Williams a Williams Cyf (WWC) has been in the business of waste since 1920.
Its humble beginnings saw the company operate with a single lorry, but nowadays it manages a waste transfer station, bulking station and a bring site for farm plastic.
A wide variety of materials pass through the company’s gates so, anticipating growing demand for its service, WWC asked WRAP Cymru for assistance in making the most of it.
WRAP provided an interim manager, whose job was to gauge market trends and identify the right equipment for the company. With the help of an Arid grant of more than £120,000, the company now plans to invest in a sorting system that will more efficiently separate card, paper, steel, aluminium and plastics, plus a baler that will help to reduce transport costs.
Aside from the equipment investment, WWC is also considering the possibility of utilising renewable technology in its operations, and hopes to install a solar energy facility with a view to making the business more self-sufficient in energy.
Managing director Meurig Jones (pictured) said that, as well as the help and support received, “the doors that have opened as a result of working with WRAP and the contacts we’ve made have been priceless”.
