WSR Recycling hails 50% hike in turnover

Recycling and resource management company WSR Recycling has said an “exceptional year” of trading has seen it increase turnover by 50%.

The Widnes-based business said a growth in private and public sector contracts had seen its turnover rise to £10.7m in the year to September, up by half on the 2013-14 financial year. The update did not detail profit.

WSR said it had added contracts with Biffa, Suez and Viridor to its client portfolio in the past 12 months. The company has also been appointed by Merseylink to manage waste material from the £1.75bn Mersey Gateway bridge project in Halton.

Managing director Nick Prescott, picture with fellow director Amanda Prescott, said the past 12 months had been ”remarkable”.

The company employs around 45 full-time staff at its headquarters, where it processes 200,000 tonnes of waste a year.

It has longstanding contracts with Halton Borough Council, Warrington Borough Council and the Merseyside Waste and Recycling Authority.
