New Deer organic recycling firm, Keenan Recycling, have opened up a new office in the central belt in order to meet customer demand.
The new office, situated in Linlithgow, will allow the company to start collecting organic waste from businesses in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Keenan Recycling have invested £700,000 in a fleet of six new lorries for the demands of their new service.
The company has already secured food waste collections from around 600 business. But they expect that number to increase to 1,000 within two months of the new service being rolled out.
Account manager at Keenan Recycling, Claire Keenan, said: “We are delighted to be working with our partners in the central belt to expand our services to a wider area.
“The new office is geographically well situated and allows us to strengthen our service in the central belt.
“Our staff already make collections over a vast area – from Stonehaven in the south to Tain in the north – and we are looking forward to growing the business in Glasgow and Edinburgh.”
Keenan Recycling’s scheme was launched in 2010 and it became the first company in the North-East to offer organisations the chance to recycle organic waste.
“The last few years have been amazing for us in terms of growth and we look forward to continuing that trend in the years to come,” added Claire.
