CSG – one of the UK’s largest waste management companies – has increased the number of technical staff employed at its Cadishead facility to support the implementation of a new waste tracking system.

Experienced chemist Michael Harper has joined CSG as technical waste assessor.

The 26-year-old from Leyland will support customers and colleagues in providing technical support and ensuring industrial or hazardous waste is correctly received, tracked and audited using the new system.

Technical waste manager Cheryl West, said: “We are delighted to welcome Michael to the team. His attention to detail will support our commitment to continuous improvement across our operating facilities.

“Michael will be a key point of contact for our sales teams and customers, providing advice on waste treatment and disposal options. He will also track everything arriving and leaving our sites, ensuring all material is correctly classified, with an auditable computerised trail of records maintained throughout the process.”

A graduate of Liverpool John Moores University, prior to joining CSG, Michael worked for Mulberry Waste in Leyland for three and a half years where he was trained to work in the on-site laboratory, handling the acceptance of waste, testing and processing.

He said: “Already I have found that this is a varied and fascinating role, with no two days ever quite the same, because we accept such a wide range of waste at our processing centres.

“My priorities encompass initial testing of waste samples, advising on the correct treatment of disposal processes and ensuring meticulous records are maintained.”

CSG is one of the largest privately-owned industrial and domestic environmental waste management groups in Britain, operating from 27 sites across the UK and employing more than 500 people.

Cheryl West added: “As a family-owned company, CSG is a very supportive employer, providing excellent opportunities and ongoing professional development for those who want to forge a career in waste management.”
