Waste Management Group Keeps Growing

18 August 2015 by Daryl Tunningley

National independent waste management operator Cleansing Service Group (CSG) has announced another business acquisition – its sixth in two years.

The Fareham headquartered company, whose services range from hazardous waste treatment and recovery to domestic off-mains drainage cleansing, has acquired the business and assets of Medway-based Tradebe Industrial Services (TIS) from international environmental services group Tradebe.

Earlier this year, CSG acquired part of the business and assets of Tradebe Refinery Services (TRS) who are based at Sandycroft in North Wales and specialise in petrochemical tank cleaning and oil waste treatment and recovery systems.

TIS provides on-site services such as high pressure water jetting, tank decommissioning, pit cleaning and spill containment.

CSG managing director Neil Richards said it was a portfolio of services which would complement and extend the range of services CSG could offer in this sector.

He confirmed that all 12 existing TIS staff would be joining the CSG workforce.

CSG’s steady march towards growth has seen the company make business acquisitions on an almost yearly basis. The group already owns established waste management brands such as hazardous waste recovery experts Lanstar,  print waste management specialists J & G Environmental and Saxon Recycling, Lloyds Environmental, Sealand and Oil Monster.

The group has now established a presence throughout England and Wales. It operates from 25 sites, many of which are undergoing major infrastructure development to match the company’s  rapid expansion into a growing number of specialist sectors as well as fast growth in the services it has traditionally offered.

CSG was founded as a one-man Hampshire-based business 81 years ago but now employs a 460 strong workforce.
