A FLEDGLING waste management firm in Bury has broken through the £2million turnover barrier in just 12 months of trading.

And now Wastesurem which operates out ofices at The Rock, is looking to kick on and become a significant player in the field.

Some of the leading lights of the building trade, including Bethell and Balfour Beatty, have contracted their services, to assist with major projects.

Managing director Mark Dunne, who set up the enterprise with partner Mena Donaghy, says their user-friendly online platforms have proven to be the difference in their breakthrough year.

He told the Bury Times: "We wanted to match our solutions to the problems we had immediately but we knew we would have to be patient to make the solution worthy enough to work properly.

"Instead of rushing, we have taken our time to create a piece of software that challenges the norms of the industry and brings our customers something far better."

Their services range from waste logistics, tstorage and segregation to bin hiring, grab trucks and dealing with hazardous and specialist waste, working across a host of different industries.

Mark had already undertaken consultancy work with the Environment Agency, in a previous role, and was aware of some of the issues frequently highlighted when dealing with waste from commercial and domestic schemes.

Site managers and drivers can check whether they have the right documentation with a few simple clicks or a QR code, under their system, which they are constantly finetuning.

"Our system will never be fully developed because we are always adapting it to the challenges we face each day," he added.

Mark is also adamant that, wherever possible, they will use or recommend local suppliers to their clients to get tasks completed.

"We want to match them up with jobs which, working with some of the larger firms, they would never otherwise get, he added.
