The WasteCare Group has purchased Veolia’s Lower Bank View hazardous waste treatment site in Liverpool.
Specialising in the treatment and disposal of industrial liquid waste, the site is licensed to treat over 2,000 tonnes per week.
The facility treats effluents such as acids, interceptors waste, alkalis, leachate, biosludge, metal hydroxide, chromic acids, nitric acid, coolants, sludge materials and others.
“This is a strategic addition to the Group, enabling us to expand our offering to both existing and new clients. This deal provides a significant boost to our capacity to handle bulk chemical waste. With the strength of our national collection fleet we are able to collect and treat virtually any type of hazardous and ‘difficult’ waste regardless of volume. When we say the answer is yes, what is the challenge, we are more certain than ever that we have the solution”, explained Peter Hunt, Chairman of the WasteCare Group.
WasteCare have a long-standing relationship with Veolia which we expect to strengthen further with this latest acquisition.
The Liverpool facility is WasteCare’s fifteenth UK licensed site and is the fifth acquisition in the last 12 months. The site has been operational for over 20 years as a liquid waste treatment facility.
The whole management and operational team lead by Paul Campbell are being retained. John Campbell has been appointed Commercial Manager for LBV and the HazCare division. Further new appointments are to be announced soon.
“When it comes to industrial effluent, we are ready for the challenge” claims John Campbell.
