Northern Ireland firm Bryson Recycling has won a four-year recycling contract worth £2.4 million in Wales.
It has signed a deal with Conwy County Borough Council, which is currently the best recycling local authority in Wales.
Social enterprise Bryson Recycling recently opened an office in London and is now seeking opportunities in England, Wales and Scotland, as well as in Northern Ireland and Ireland.
Bryson Recycling director Eric Randal said: “We have only recently opened our new office in London and we are delighted to announce our first major contract win, which we hope will be one of many. We faced stiff competition from across the UK, but this new contract will see Bryson bring our social enterprise model to Wales.
“In Northern Ireland alone, we are currently processing almost 60 per cent of household recyclables collected from homes and we make a concerted effort to find markets for the materials locally and to date we are selling 35 per cent of the materials to Northern Ireland companies such as Huhtamaki, Quinn Glass, Cherry Pipes and CTR supporting around 1,000 jobs.”
