Manchester Business Cements Future With Continued Investment

14 June 2018 by Daryl Tunningley

A Manchester business continues to grow after investing more than a quarter of a million pounds in what is reportedly the UK’s largest hazardous waste treatment and recovery facility.

Leading waste specialists CSG has ploughed more than £250k into its Cadishead site as part of its ongoing investment to ensure the long-term viability of the site.

Neil Richards, managing director of CSG: “This investment represents our commitment as a business to look for innovative technology to process and recycle as many waste components as possible, and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

“Cadishead is CSG’s flagship facility and it’s making a substantial contribution to the company’s growth and success. We recognise that further investment is needed to secure the long-term viability of the site.

“Last year alone, the Cadishead site took in more than 93,100 tonnes of waste, from hazardous and oil waste, to packaging that can be washed and then recycled.

“In addition, as part of our investment for 2018, we will also be upgrading our onsite traffic management and providing in-house improvements for our valued employees.”

Investment includes the installation of a new press, which works to extract as much water as possible from various wastes such as waste acid which is first neutralized with lime, and once the treated effluent is extracted it can then go to sewer, subsequently reducing the overall amount of waste sent to landfill.

The company, which has 26 other sites across the UK, is one of the largest privately-owned industrial and domestic environmental waste management groups in Britain. The business works on the goal of diverting waste from landfill, recovering and recycling as much material as possible.

CSG was founded as a one-man sewage collection business in rural Hampshire more than 80 years ago and now employs a national workforce of nearly 500 people.
