Waste management company HW Martin has acquired Premier Waste’s commercial collections division and Washington MRF in Tyne and Wear, Sunderland.
The deal also includes HW Martin taking on Durham-based Premier Waste’s main operating centres. The divisions that were taken over began operating as Premier Waste Recycling from 1 April.
HW Martin provides waste management services for municipal waste. The acquisition will expand on this by adding a commercial and industrial waste management arm to the business.
A spokesperson for HW Martin said: “The acquisition of [Premier Waste’s] commercial collection and recycling division by the Martin Group of Companies brings with it the investment required to realise the company’s expansion potential. Premier Waste Recycling will deliver high-quality customer service and innovations in recycling and waste treatment.”
All existing staff have transferred under the new set up.
