Dunstable Waste Group acquired by Greenstar
Waste management company Greenstar has acquired Dunstable Waste Group, a Bedfordshire-based commercial waste disposal and recycling business trading as Firbank Chiltern.The new acquisition continues the company's move to become a fully integrated firm with interests across the whole of the UK.
Last year, Greenstar acquired Verdant Group, a residential municipal services provider in the UK.
Commenting on the acquisition, Greenstar chief executive Ian Wakel said: "This deal gives Greenstar a bigger footprint in the South East of England.
"We see considerable opportunity for expanding our very successful commercial waste and recycling model in the region.
"We've put in place yet another element of our strategic vision.
"Greenstar is well on its way to building a national network of fully integrated collection and processing services that will enable British companies and Britons to waste less and recycle more," he added.
Situated in Houghton Regis near Dunstable, Firbank Chiltern processes approximately 50,000 tonnes of waste and recyclable materials every year, collecting general waste, glass and aluminium from commercial and industrial customers.
