NWH Group cleans up in Edinburgh

FOLLOWING almost two weeks of strike action by local refuse workers in Edinburgh, The NWH Group, one of the UK’s leading recycling companies, has been brought in by The City of Edinburgh Council to help clean up the city.

The business, which is head-officed just south of Edinburgh near Dalkeith, was on hand with its eight-wheeled grab lorries to scoop up the rubbish which has been left piled high throughout the historic city.

Nicola Williams, Sales and Marketing Director at NWH Group, said: “There were no collections during the period of action and waste and recycling centres also remained closed, so it’s been a fairly major operation to clean up the mess.

“We’re proud of our team who have been working tirelessly across several locations since last Tuesday, and have made excellent progress with the streets returning to their usual respectable state.”

The NWH Group has cleared and collected a range of materials from across the Grassmarket, New Town and Holyrood areas of the city, and transported it to the Council’s waste transfer stations at Sighthill and Seafield.

Angela Buchanan, member of the public, added: “All credit to the guys from NWH Group who came round Comley Bank to lift the black bags and other rubbish lying at the sides of communal bins. They did a great job, and the woman even swept the pavements after everything was lifted.”

The NWH Group offers a wide range of waste and recycling services to commercial and domestic customers, including skip hire, trade waste collections, road sweeping and grab hire. To find out more click HERE.
