Ellgia set for further expansion into Grimsby

Grimsby Man of Match

Ellgia Ltd are expanding into Grimsby from their site in Scunthorpe.

Since our acquisition of Bell Waste and Thompson’s in 2014, we have looked to expand our waste disposal services across North and North East Lincolnshire as well as Grimsby.

We remain committed to the area with local investments in both business, employment and the community.

The Scunthorpe site will be utilised as a central processing hub in the plans for future logistical expansion across the region. Processing 2,500 tonnes a week, the 14 acre site on Winterton Road has the capacity for almost double and is prepped to meet the demands of continued growth.

Operations Director, Jack Lavington said

2018 has been a challenging but exciting year of change.
We have internalised waste from our southern sites, completely redesigned and commissioned our new processing lines in Scunthorpe and have made strides to reinvent our brand to better reflect the journey we take waste on as we transform it into a resource’
‘We now manufacture from our waste by creating fuel; Solid Recovery Fuel (SRF) and Refused Derived Fuel (RDF) both of which can be used for energy generation and our continued aim is to work towards our zero to landfill philosophy
We’re continually investing to keep us ahead when it comes to the management of our waste streams

 

Grimsby Town FC have been a prominent addition to the expanding portfolio, a link that Nick Dale, Stadium Manager, believes has been hugely beneficial for the club in our focus to become more sustainable and consciously aware of our waste management. Ellgia are the official waste partners of the club providing the wheelie bins across the ground and managing their waste disposal.

We recycle everything from the bottles to the grass cuttings. It is important for the club operation to understand where our waste is going.
We encourage the fans to dispose of waste into the right channels and even separate some materials here in house before they are collected

Ellgia have also shown their support through sponsorship opportunities and the green branding can be seen at various points across the stadium.

Jack Lavington said

We’re extremely pleased to have been appointed the official waste partner for GTFC. The services we offer allow the Football Club to fulfil their environmental and compliance responsibilities thus allowing them to concentrate on results on the pitch.
