Hazardous waste management company Environmental Resource Group has acquired two firms in Hampshire.
ERG bought Hazchem Waste Disposal and the Lamp Recycling Company, both based near Alton, for undisclosed sums.
Hazchem provides disposal services for most hazardous waste, while the Lamp Recycling Company recycles fluorescent lamps and collects WEEE, fridges, paint, aerosols, oils and filters.
The takeovers will allow ERG to expand its activities to expand from its main area of operations in the Midlands.
It will also enable the company to provide more integrated services, according to chief executive Aron James.
“The hazardous waste market is very fragmented with lots of players,” he said. “It was my mission to create a new and unique business that was wholly client centric.”
ERG comprises of seven interconnecting businesses in hazardous waste, industrial cleaning, logistics and construction.
