Hamilton Waste and Recycling has announced three acquisitions as the company continues the expansion of its skip and commercial waste operations.
In a move to accelerate the growth of its commercial and industrial waste business, the Edinburgh-based firm has acquired Citiwaste Recycling, Tartan Waste and Colinton Skips, which will enable Hamilton to further expand its collection capacity in the region.
Commenting on the acquisition, which will include a number of additional vehicles, Hamilton’s Director, David Hamilton, said: “I’d like to welcome the customers of Citiwaste, Tartan Waste and Colinton Skip Hire to Hamilton and we look forward to working with them to realise the commercial and environmental benefits of increased recycling.
“These acquisitions, together with our plans to run Edinburgh’s first electric waste collection fleet, show our commitment to growing our commercial waste business in Edinburgh and helping local businesses to further improve their environmental performance.”
Family-owned Hamilton Waste & Recycling was founded in 2002 and operates over 30 waste and recycling vehicles in and around Edinburgh. In recent years, the company has invested over £10 million in developing a sophisticated recycling facility, capable of recovering and diverting over 97 per cent of the commercial and construction waste it processes. Waste that cannot be recycling is used in the production of a waste derived fuel, which is in turn used to offset traditional fossil fuels.
