Take-over in waste sector

Waste Recycling Group has bought Hanson Waste Management for £185 million, bringing a further 19 landfill sites - and nine landfill gas power schemes - into the group. The deal, creating a powerful force in the waste industry, follows a string of previous WRG acquisitions - including Yorkshire Environmental, 3C Waste and East Waste. The Hanson deal also hands WRG the incineration project at Allington quarry in Kent, for which full planning approval was granted last year.
