CSG acquires Tradebe
Waste management operator, Cleansing Service Group has announced its acquisition of Tradebe Industrial Services.
The Fareham based company has acquired the business and assets of Medway-based firm from international environmental services group Tradebe.
Green bin fall-off boosts landfill
The withdrawal of green bin collections by Scottish Borders Council (SBC) has resulted in a 5% increase in the proportion of the region’s household waste going to landfill.
In an update to SBC’s executive, waste manager Ross Sharp-Dent reported that 63.46% of household waste collected by the council in the first quarter of this year went to landfill, compared to 58.35% in the corresponding three months of 2014.

Recycling rates in Portsmouth are nearly half the national average.
In the city, just 23% of household waste is recycled, against a national average of 43%.
