Gavin Griffiths Recycling


Back in 2005, Gavin Griffiths recognised there was a gap in the local market for a reputable recycling company, Gavin was successful with a roadside recycling tender as a tier two contractor for Highways England to refresh french drains alongside the motorway network, and to this day, the business still carries out this work. Cashflow and growing the business were the most challenging aspects during the first few years as well as the markets crashing in 2008 presented unique challenges.

Success Factor

Gavin Griffiths Recycling has grown because of a total commitment and dedication to ensuring that customers receive what they expect from the business and beyond, going above and beyond to meet deadlines and project timelines by providing a reliable and consistent service with great communication at all times. The business has also made sound investments into the right areas of the business at the right times, taking bold steps and being brave within uncertain times.

The Future

Following commissioning of a new multimillion pound soil washing plant it has installed at its Cross Hands Facility, growth for Gavin Griffiths Recycling will accelerate due to the new products it will be able to offer. Over the next five years, the company will be investing in around 20 new HGV vehicles which will also increase profit margins and is currently in the planning stage of mining an inert landfill which will be the first of its kind in the UK. Finally, the company is planning to generate its own power on site by using the waste side of the business in order to fuel its own plant and machinery, thus providing a sustainable closed loop system.
