Essex-based recycling firm Green Recycling has acquired Recycle-Direct.com for an undisclosed sum, expanding its footprint in the area.
Recycle-Direct.com, which also provides a commercial and industrial waste collection service in Maldon, Essex, will be rebranded under the Green Recycling logo. The purchase has increased Green Recycling’s fleet by four trucks, while the tonnage of materials it handles each year will increase by a quarter to 25,000 tonnes. Four members of staff have also transferred to Green Recycling from Recycle-Direct.com.
Green Recycling managing director Robert Smith said: “The move will strengthen our position in the Essex area and allow it to further develop commercial glass and office paper collections to compliment the general waste collections that Green Recycling currently operates.”
