A flourishing Otley-based national waste and recycling company is celebrating its fifth anniversary by planning for further growth.

707 Resource Management has grown from being a three-man outfit, started in 2009, to now employing 34 people and having a £6.5 million turnover.

Based at Wharfebank Business Centre, the business counts the likes of the NHS, Britannia Hotels, and Dairy Crest among its clients.

It also provides waste solution schemes to thousands of smaller firms in the office, retail, clinical and hospitality sectors - with the ultimate aim of helping them have no waste at all going to landfill.

Managing director David Adams said: "We’re over the moon to be celebrating 707’s fifth birthday at such an exciting time of business growth.

"I’m really proud of the team we’ve developed and I’m really excited that we still have so much potential for expansion.

“We have a growth plan that will see the business double in size in the next five years, and a target turnover of £13 million. We will continue to invest in businesses and the industry, with the hope of having a louder voice to shape how

we recycle."

The company, believing that 'zero landfill' is a realistic goal, uses innovative technologies to provide waste collection and recycling services that are focused on reducing costs.
