Pontypool-based waste specialists Nationwide Waste Solutions Ltd through its online trading brand The Skip Company are celebrating six years in business.

The business has a current turnover of £3m and plans for further growth and expansion.

It started with two staff and now employs eight people with further recruitment planned over the coming year.

Matthew Davies, managing director, said the issues around waste and recycling were currently high profile.

He said: "We can deal with all types of waste which not only provides you with a single point of contact but gives you more time for your day job. For commercial customers we also offer free waste audits and we welcome businesses of all sizes to get in touch no matter how much waste you produce."

Over the six years the business has enjoyed steady growth.

It has achieved and is working to the internationally recognised ISO 9001 and 14001 standards plus gaining CHAS accreditation for health and safety.

Matthew said: “Compliance is an important part of what we do. We provide full transparency and the appropriate paperwork on all our services. With the increase of fly tipping our customers can have peace of mind that their waste doesn’t end up in a lane or on the mountainside."

The business works throughout the UK and Ireland and its clients include consumer and commercial customers needing skips, grabs, site clearances or regular and ongoing waste services.
