The appointments are a significant part of the company’s growth and development plans says Managing Director, Paul Needham: “2018 promises to be a very exciting year for our company as we look to introduce new services and increase our customer base by entering new markets. In order to deliver our strategy, we need to ensure that the business has the strongest possible senior management team in place. Adding Paul and Wayne to our board of directors increases our knowledge and expertise, and I’m sure they will both play an integral part in helping Wastecycle achieve its short and longer-term goals.”

Mr Walker will oversee the company’s logistics and will be introducing new systems and processes to ensure Wastecycle operates its fleet of 65 vehicles at optimum efficiency, whilst maintaining the highest levels of customer service.

Paul joins Wastecycle following 12 years with DHL Supply Chain, where he was Operations Director. In his time with DHL his work improving the efficiency of field engineer deployment and the introduction of new services were recognised with a CEO Innovation Award.

“As well as working across many different sectors within the industry, I enjoyed five years leading DHL’s utilities business, which incorporated their waste collection service on behalf of British Gas. We were responsible for 160,000 uplifts a year, collecting waste following engineering boiler installations and repairs, so I have had a small insight into this diverse and exciting industry. I’m looking forward to getting to know Wastecycle even better and helping grow the business. It’s certainly an industry that has huge potential for an ambitious, innovative and safety-conscious company such as Wastecycle.”

Mr Cornell joins Wastecycle following 12 years with Kal Tire, in which time he rose from Production Manager to UK Country General Manager with responsibility for the health and well-being over 200 people across six business units spanning mining, quarrying and the waste industry.

“I first became aware of Wastecycle as they were one of my customers at Kal Tire. There’s a real aspiration for growth here at Wastecycle, and I’m excited about the challenge of helping the company continue to grow over the next few years. I will be working closely with the team here to increase throughput, implementing lean, visual management and looking at new markets and product development,” says Wayne, who recently completed a Masters of Business Administration at Derby University.

Established in 1998, Wastecycle has grown rapidly and today is the leading resource management and recycling company in the East Midlands. The company uses the latest technologies to help over 3,000 businesses improve resource efficiency and reduce their operating costs by increasing recycling and decreasing carbon emissions. The firm processes more than 500,000 tonnes of commercial, construction and domestic waste and materials each year, of which, over 97% is recycled and recovered.
