SITA strategic partnership to pursue Northern Ireland business

SITA Northern Ireland (SITA NI) is set to expand its waste management reach in Northern Ireland with a strategic partnership strengthening its regional contract bids.

The company announced it was teaming up with the Royal Bank of Scotland, thermal technology specialists Von Roll Inova and two Northern Ireland-based companies: recycling specialists Natural World Products and construction company Graham.

UK chief executive officer David Palmer-Jones said the company aimed for a financially sound and long term local partnership to offer solutions suited to each community. He also said resource efficiency and developing infrastructure from collection to treatment was at the heart of SITAs strategy.

Talk of long-term solutions may win the company supporters as, at the end of October, the Irish Waste Management Association warned that the recycling market could collapse without long-term solutions.

Recently the market has also become more attractive for large international companies as tax breaks to entice them have been discussed by the Department of Finance and the Department of the Taoiseach.

Commenting on SITA NIs previous experience in the region Palmer-Jones said: SITA (NI) is the largest and most experienced recycling and waste management company in Northern Ireland.

Underpinning all our activity is a commitment to work with local partners to develop a more sustainable solution for managing waste. To achieve this in Northern Ireland we have teamed up with Graham and NWP, two leading companies who will strengthen our offer.
