Recycling company boosts team


One of the south west’s leading recycling companies has appointed four new specialist advisers to help businesses keep on top of their legal obligations.

The Electronic Waste Company has taken on three full-time members of staff at its Redruth headquarters, and fourth member of staff based in Birmingham.

The advisers will help businesses meet tough European regulations known as the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment, or WEEE, Directive.

They’ll also be on call for businesses who need help disposing of sometimes hazardous electrical equipment safely and securely.

The new staff members have a wide experience of recycling, retail, business development and management, allowing them to provide tailored help and assistance.

Simon Wilde was the founder of Rag and Bone 2000, an organisation which collected recycling from homes and business in the mid-Cornwall area and was subsequently taken over by Cornwall County Council.

Ian Curtis has a background in retail across a range of sectors including electrical and IT equipment sales while Sarah Williams has worked in a number of media, management and training roles in mid- and North Cornwall.

Keith Jones, who will be based in Birmingham, has sold IT equipment to the NHS and large corporate organisations for the last 16 years.
