B&M Waste Services has continued its expansion in the West Midlands with the acquisition of the business of fellow family-run waste management company, Ian Wilcox Recycling. This is the second acquisition in the West Midlands area this year for B&M Waste following the acquisition of AWS Recycling’s trade rounds over the summer. This deal sees B&M Waste strengthen its provision offering a Carbon Neutral waste management service to businesses looking to both minimise waste output and maximise recycling.
The three members of staff within Ian Wilcox Recycling all transferred to B&M Waste and are now part of the larger team of 30 staff in the depot. Ian Wilcox, owner of Ian Wilcox Recycling, said: “Having an ethos of customer service ourselves we felt a natural home for our customers and staff would be in the B&M Waste family. We are impressed by the new weighing vehicles B&M Waste has invested in ready for the planned July 2020 city vehicle emission limits.”
Mick Ashall, director at B&M Waste Services, said: “This acquisition further strengthens our capabilities in the West Midlands, which we’re immensely proud of. We look forward to working with our new customers building on the separate food, cardboard, glass, general waste, and secure shredding collection services.”
