Wastesavers takes over E-Inclusion Recycling (26.07.12)


       
 
E-Inclusion Recycling has become part of Wastesavers Charitable Trust with a takeover agreement reached on 1 July. Both businesses are based locally in Newport and are excited by the opportunities the acquisition will bring for both parties.
 
Cylch members, Wastesavers are best known for providing the kerbside recycling collection to Newport residents, but also run a number of other social projects including PEAK – a project that works with 14-18 year olds who struggle to thrive in mainstream education, helping them to gain key practical and life skills. 
 
E-Inclusion specialise in IT collection and disposal, but also run a number of social inclusions programmes, using computers to transform the lives of the most disadvantaged individuals and communities in Wales.  
 
Penny Williams, CEO of Wastesavers says “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to make E-Inclusion part of the Wastesavers team. As a charitable trust, our priority is to improve the environment of Newport, and by combining expertise and resources with E-Inclusion, we are a step further to achieving this”. 
 
The acquisition of E-Inclusion will help to reduce the amount of material going to landfill, and to use those resources as a tool for social change. It will better serve the needs of businesses looking for a complete recycling solution and will enable the both Wastesavers and E-Inclusion to build on their success working in the community with volunteers and placements, and those regarded as socially excluded.
 
Mary Rudge of E-Inclusion says “As a team we are looking forward to expanding our recycling and social programmes which by becoming part of Wastesavers Charitable Trust we will be able to achieve. Wastesavers has the same objectives and ambitions as us, so it made sense to come together and we are really excited about the opportunities it will bring”.
