WasteCare

This waste management business was established in 1980 to recycle x-ray, photographic and printing waste for the recovery of silver. The Leeds firm has since expanded to 16 regional sites, recycling more than 1,000 different waste streams from all commercial and industrial sectors. It has developed an app, myWaste, which is already being used by 2,000 of its 20,000 clients. Its waste volumes increased by 22% in 2018, lifting profits to £3.1m. Founder and chairman Peter Hunt, 63, is preparing for growth, with £6m invested in the company last year.
