Waste management leaders WasteSURE off to a flying start in 2021


A nationwide waste management company has beaten off the possible effects of the Covid-19 pandemic by recording its best start to a new year.

WasteSURE, which saw a 400% upturn in turnover during January, has moved into 2021 with an increased number of staff and a £1million investment in new offices.

The company, based in new headquarters in Bury, says its growth is mainly due to the success of its water filtration media plant – an industry-first piece of machinery which removes up to 70 per cent more contaminant and recycles 98 per cent of waste product.

Looking forward, WasteSURE intends further investment in software and further property purchases across the UK, including office space in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

Mark Dunne, co-founder and MD of WasteSURE, says:

“We operate across multiple industries and some have thrived during the pandemic.

“We work alongside a small number of large key clients and the positive relationship we have with them enabled WasteSURE to have a brilliant year and a great start to 2021. In fact, January was our best month since the business was formed in 2018.

“Our clients require a comprehensive service and rely on a consistent, compliant workflow - particularly when their supply chain is impacted. With a flexible approach, WasteSURE adjust the level of help and support provided to fit. 

“My belief is always that it doesn’t matter how many problems you come up against, if you can work to your strengths and find a solution, you will see a reward.

“We are particularly proud to have purchased the former courthouse in Bury which will become our headquarters to take the company forward into the next decade during which we intend to continue our amazing growth.”

WasteSURE offers a host of waste solutions including skip hire, on-site waste segregation and storage, waste analysis and removal, and compliance management.

The water filtration media refurbishment service came about as a partnership with the manufacturers of the Portafill 3000ST.

The original machinery was adapted to create a bespoke application which delivers an enhanced cleaning of the materials found in water filtration systems, such as blast furnace slag and pumice, as well as the soil and gravel typically found in reed beds.

The water filtration providers use the adapted machinery to have their raw materials cleaned on site, removing up to 70 per cent more contaminate than other solutions.

WasteSURE’s equipment has been designed to eliminate the carbon-heavy transportation associated with replacing materials because up to 98 per cent of filtration product can be reused immediately.

It estimates that for clients with a 4000-tonne reed bed, up to 500 movements will be prevented, creating savings of up to £500,000 per project.

Mark Dunne says:

“We’ve been a preferred choice in the removal and supply of new material for water filtration systems for some time. It’s the backbone of our business.”
