A betting entrepreneur’s recycling business has expanded after it rebranded last month.
Millionaire entrepreneur Andrew Black, founder of online betting service Betfair, bought Hydrodec UK earlier this year and, in November, the company rebranded as Slicker Recycling.
Now the company has bought the business and assets of interceptor and vehicle wash specialist John Rome from the Avanti Group.
Slicker Recycling managing director Mark Olpin said the acquisition was in line with the company’s plan to expand from an oil company into the waste management market.
He said: “We can now have a full environmental and waste package for the auto and commercial vehicle market. In addition to our nationwide oil recycling and workshop waste collections, we can provide specialist interceptor and vehicle wash cleaning and maintenance.
“John Rome is a leader in interceptor and car wash environmental services, and we have worked with this company extensively in the past on a subcontract basis. Now it is part of Slicker Recycling, we can provide a direct, complete package.”
In addition to linking with oil and waste collection, the cleaning and maintenance services for drainage systems, interceptors and vehicle washes are available separately.
