One of the region’s leading waste management companies has signed a landfill diversion agreement with a global firm.
Niramax, based in Thomlinson Road, Hartlepool, has reached the agreement with industry leaders Veolia.
The deal will see Veolia take over the running of Niramax’s 4,000 trade waste bins which are collected from over 1,000 customers across the North East.
And in turn, the waste from the bins will be processed by Niramax.
The deal has been agreed as part of both companies’ long term growth plans and commitment to reducing the amount of waste which ends up in landfill sites.
Managing Director of Niramax, Frank Antropik said: “We have been in discussions with Veolia for some time to reach this agreement, which we believe enhances our business offering and adds another string to our bow.
“It’s a win-win situation for both companies as it very much plays to our strengths, with Veolia collecting the waste and Niramax processing and treating it – diverting it away from landfill which of course is a big priority for the industry.”
