Bryson Recycling cleans up with Welsh deal

Northern Ireland social enterprise Bryson Recycling has scooped a £2.4m contact in Wales.

The new deal is with Conwy County Borough Council who recently topped the national recycling league table for Wales.

Bryson recently opened a new office in London and is now activity seeking opportunities for waste and recycling contracts across England, Scotland and Wales.

Bryson Recycling is part of the Bryson Charitable Group, Northern Ireland's leading social enterprise and the third largest social enterprise in the UK .

Bryson director Eric Randa said that in Northern Ireland alone the firm is currently processing almost 60% of household recyclables collected from homes and is selling 35% of the materials to Northern Ireland companies, supporting around 1000 jobs.

"We are delighted to announce our first major contract win, which we hope will be one of many," he said.

"We faced stiff competition but this new contract will see Bryson bring our social enterprise business model to Wales.
