Burton-based Willshee’s Waste & Recycling has appointed Simon Lowe as commercial manager following a very successful year and as the company gears up for future growth.
Simon has over eight years’ experience of the recycling sector. He has specialist knowledge of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) production and was responsible for securing recovery routes in the UK and in Europe in his previous role as senior project manager at Geminor. Prior to that, he managed a Materials Recovery Facility and household waste recycling centres for Veolia. This involved working with sorting, processing and production facilities to ensure best practice service delivery and compliance, dealing with all the relevant regulatory bodies as required.
Dean Willshee, managing director of Willshee’s, commented: “Simon has excellent knowledge of the waste and utilities industries. He is skilled in environmental awareness, waste management, waste to energy process as well as operational and project management. We are delighted to welcome Simon to the team, strengthening our in-house specialist skillset and therein our service to customers too.”
Simon added: “There is great potential for Willshee’s to increase its market share given that so many businesses are putting increasing importance on minimising their environmental impact and looking for a zero waste to landfill solution.”
Willshee’s is the leading independent waste and recycling management company in the Midlands and has been providing waste and recycling solutions for over 37 years. The company can propose, develop and deliver tailor-made services for the collection, recycling and disposal of any waste with a particular focus on achieving zero waste to landfill; alongside its skip and equipment hire services. Willshee’s recently invested £10million in opening its third depot, a Materials Recycling Facility in Swadlincote, Derbyshire.
