Cumbria Waste Group Expand Into The North East

March 22nd, 2022

We are excited to announce our recent acquisition in Middlesbrough.

Cumbria Waste Group (CWG) has completed commissioning of a recently-acquired material recycling facility (MRF) in Middlesbrough.  Following a programme of site refurbishment and upgrades in sorting technology, the facility is now capable of processing any mix of recyclate streams.  This includes a variety of materials including plastics, paper, card, glass and cans creating separated materials of high quality, maximising the value from recovered materials both environmentally and financially.  As a Group we are able to offer total management waste solutions, and we are well-positioned to support Local Authorities and commercial businesses that want to increase future waste management and recycling performance.

The facility expands the Group’s total waste management capacity, with existing collection, transfer and material processing operations located in Cumbria and North Lancashire.

Commenting on the expansion of CWG into the North East, Andy Chant, CEO of Cumbria Waste Group, said “ This development of the Group’s presence in the North East is an integral part of our growth strategy. The opportunity to repurpose the site and equipment, create jobs and form partnerships with local authorities and local businesses alike is exciting. Our stance is to offer a total waste solutions package to the market covering both public and private sectors and builds on the business model we have developed in Cumbria”.
