Hills Waste Solutions, the Swindon-based waste management and recycling company, has expanded its operations into the Bristol and Bath area with the acquisition of Able Waste Management Limited.
Able Waste Management was set up by Steve Hale and Martin Williams and has been trading from their site on the Hallen Estate, Avonmouth, Bristol since 2001. The company runs commercial waste recycling and food collections as well as trade and residential skip services with a fleet of 16 vehicles and employs 33 people. Both Steve and Martin will remain with the business as depot manager and operations supervisor respectively.
Gary McKinnon, divisional director Hills Waste Solutions, said: “This acquisition gives Hills a base in Bristol which has been identified as one of the top 20 growth areas in the country. It provides an excellent platform to expand waste collection services in line with Hills’ existing activities and opens up new opportunities to tender for business in the Bristol and Bath areas.”
Steve Hale said: “We are so pleased to be associated with Hills and are looking forward to working together on this new venture. This acquisition and the investment that Hills brings will take the business to another level and I am sure it will be a success.”
