Hazardous waste specialist Wastege prepare £1m revenue boost with new UNTHA UK shredder


Hazardous waste specialist Wastege Waste Management invested in an UNTHA S25 shredder as the team prepare to take on an additional £1million of business.

But with an ever-growing reputation for tackling particularly complex materials, Wastege is increasingly tasked to handle more unwanted waste.

The company has therefore purchased an UNTHA S25 twin-shaft shredder to process hazardous packaging waste and guarantee the secure destruction of other sensitive products.

Wastege’s Managing Director Mark Taylor said: “We’re working with a number of large manufacturing firms throughout the country.

“Often, they task us with destroying their confidential documents as well as product prototypes that cannot get into the public domain. The same can be said for materials from the Ministry of Defence, who we also have a relationship with.

“We therefore went to market looking for a robust shredder that meets all of our EU compliance and external ISO audit obligations. After conducting rigorous due diligence, we chose the UNTHA S25 technology.”

The Hull-headquartered firm has more than 30 years’ waste management and recycling experience, supporting clients throughout the UK.

The materials are being shredded down to a homogenous 40mm particle size before being sent for compulsory incineration.

Wastege is currently handling two tonnes of such material per day, but with further contracts on the horizon this could soon increase to 14 tonnes.

Mark added: “We chose this UNTHA machine because reliability is key for our business.

“This is a pivotal point in our company’s growth, and with an additional £1million of revenue on the horizon it is crucial we continue to invest in the leading-edge technologies that underpin our reputation.”

Mark stated the S25 investment was also down to reliability, while avoiding any costly breakdowns that will impact on our service levels as well as operational margins.

Wastege Waste Management provides an array of wider services including asbestos removal, spill control, liquid waste disposal, industrial clean ups, WEEE recycling and hazardous waste training, to name just a few.
