Top Track 250

Led by chairman Norman Grundon, 77, this Oxfordshire-based company provides waste management services for local councils and other customers — including Heathrow airport, the Silverstone race track and several NHS trusts. It handles all types of waste, recovering valuable resources for recycling and energy generation. Last year the business opened a bulk recycling centre and launched a service for recycling paper cups — aiming to tackle some of the 2.5bn that are discarded in Britain every year.
