B&M Waste to invest £1m in new facility

A NORTH West waste management company is investing £1m in a new facility on Trafford Park.

Wirral-based B&M Waste Services is developing a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) facility at its existing Manchester cite. B&M has signed a contract with a major German utilities company which will see the RDF exported for recovery at an energy facility in Germany. The investment will create five jobs.

Director Neil Curtis said: “This is a substantial investment which further demonstrates our commitment to providing an economic and environmentally sound alternative to fossil fuels.

“Since B&M was established in 1999 the business has grown organically and this facility is just one facet of an ambitious expansion plan which will take our services into more geographical areas and sectors.

The facility – set to open this spring – will take commercial waste, which will be identified and separated, with any materials such as cardboard, wood and metals recycled.

The remaining non-recyclable waste is processed, compacted into bales, then wrapped and transported to a CHP (Combined Heat and Power) site.

B&M Waste Services is the UK’s largest independent waste and recycling specialist, employing more than 170 people across sites in Merseyside, Manchester, Leeds and Norwich.
