Celebrating success: Kat Nelligan - Sales Team Leader, Keith Matthews - Financial Controller, Paul Finn - Commercial Manager and Ben Lukey - Managing Director.

Managing director Ben Lukey hopes the expansion will help the group, which arranges domestic and commercial waste clearance nationally, hit turnover of £10million for the current year.

"This has been an exciting period of growth for us, and our new office in Leeds will help us strengthen our presence in the north of England," he added.

The group, which employs 22 staff arranging the hire of skips, grab lorries and tippers, plus site clearance and the supply of aggregates, has recently been awarded a range of industry-recognised accreditations.

These include Safe Contractor certification, Achilles Building Confidence Level 3 accreditation, and meeting International Organization of Standardisation (ISO) standards in quality management and environmental impact.

Mr Lukey, who started the business in 2007, said: "Our key business values are excellent customer service and consideration for the environment.

"We're proud of these accreditations, which shows our commitment to good business practices and to measuring and reducing our environmental impact wherever possible.

"These awards will be essential as the company grows and handles more commercial waste management projects."

AMA Waste Group recycles 100,000 tons of waste per year and has supplied more than 200,000 skips across the country since 2007.
