RIG CEO Paul Nicholls said: “Acquiring Park-an-Chy Waste Transfer Station allows us to scale our pioneering work, by diverting waste from landfills and creating a circular economy solution to the UK’s mineral requirements.

“As part of our growth, we’re looking to create a cutting-edge research and development waste processing depot to advance bioremediation techniques of complex waste streams, to expand our positive impact for a circular waste economy.”
