Droitwich waste management firm creates three new jobs thanks to Lloyds Bank scheme

A RECYCLING and waste management firm based in Droitwich has created three more jobs.

Clearaway Limited, based on the Rushock Trading Estate, collects and recycles glass, plastics and cardboard from factories, restaurants, schools and colleges across the West Midlands, Worcestershire and the Black Country.

It serves 5,000 businesses across the Midlands and completes 250,000 collections every year.

Following a 20 per cent increase in demand last year Clearaway approached Lloyds Bank’s Commercial Banking for funding so it could expand.

Funding provided helped it invest in new disposal vehicles which takes its fleet to 20 and will help it cope with demand by carrying out another 50,000 collections each year.

Clearaway will also be able to access clean air zones on collection routes.

Clearaway director Calvin Williams said the increase in demand for recycling and disposal had come about because of increased pressures on businesses to operate more sustainably.

“Our new vehicles will allow us to keep up with this demand and ensure more businesses in the area can opt for a greener choice when it comes to waste disposal.”

He said Lloyds Bank understood its business model and helped fuel the growth, adding he looked forward to working with the team in the future to expand even further across the West Midlands.

Phil Larner, relationship manager at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: “We are here to support companies like Clearaway to realise their growth potential as part of our commitment to help Britain prosper.”
