About Us

Where we started

In 2002 Transwaste Recycling and Aggregates Ltd started trading from Hessle Dock, Livingston Road which is just to the west of Hull near the Humber Bridge. In May 2003, the company was granted a licence by the Environment Agency to start separating, treating, recycling and storing waste. In February 2008, the company moved to its present home on Gibson Lane at Melton. The site was a purpose-built waste transfer station and over 500,000 tonnes of waste is now handled through the facility, with only approximately 5% being landfilled.

Many waste streams are sorted and recycled at Melton including bricks, concrete, green waste, wood, plasterboard, plastic, cardboard and metal. Any residue is turned into either a Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) for heating cement kilns or a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) for use in producing electricity in waste-to-energy plants.

A second depot at Foster Street in Hull quickly followed as the company needed somewhere for its regular Hull based customers to use.
