Wastechnique looks to expand

Ahead of the introduction of the waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) directive next year, a specialist WEEE recycler has invested £1 million in a new plant and increased workforce - and is looking at further expansion.

Wastechnique, which specialises in the recovery and refurbishment of televisions and computers, expects to increase turnover from £1.25 million to £1.75 million after the WEEE directive is introduced.

Based in South Wales, the company currently processes about 22,000 cathode ray tubes and 8,000 computers a month, re-distributing working equipment to international markets.

With arrangements for the collection of waste televisions from 21 local authorities in Wales, the West of England and along the M4 corridor to Swindon, the company says it is looking at expansion in the North East, Kent, Devon and North Wales.

Managing director Richard Davies said: The Wastechnique brand is highly respected and well known for the quality of the service we provide and we feel that other areas of the UK could benefit greatly from this level of service and, therefore, we are actively looking at the possibility of geographic expansion.
