Dove, based in Wickham near Portsmouth, offers a complete and confidential waste service for businesses and has its own materials recycling facility at Drokes Farm. TJ will be taking over these services and its 490 business clients situated on the M27 and A3 corridors.
TJ director John Gosling said: This is a strategic acquisition for TJ, as it means we can, for the first time, provide a major recycling collection service for businesses across the central south coast.
Dove has an excellent portfolio of clients and the transition of service providers has been seamless the only difference customers will notice is in the branding.
The service, new under our name, will complement our waste and haulage services as we divert more and more material away from landfill.
Materials, which will be collected for recycling at TJs MRFs include aluminium cans, paper, cardboard, plastic fluorescent tubes and obsolete IT equipment.
TJ has also recently been appointed the waste and recycling supplier for Portsmouth Football Club and one of the largest business parks on the south coast Langstone Technology Park in Havant.
The series of wins comes after TJ was given local authority approval to expand its MRF facility in West Sussex to help deal with a capacity shortfall for construction and demolition waste. (See MRW story)
