Waste company placed into administration


A WASTE management and skip hire company, in Southam, has been placed in administration.

Matthew Hardy and Andrew Turpin, of Poppleton and Appleby, have been appointed Joint Administrators over the affairs of County Waste Limited, formerly known as County Waste Recycling Limited, which traded out of Southam.

The company operated across the Midlands and employed around 20 staff.

The last set of accounts showed the firm turned over almost £4 million pounds, but it does not seem to have been operating since February of this year.

Matthew Hardy, who was appointed after a court hearing regarding the affairs of the company, said: “This is a complicated case. It appears that the company effectively ceased trading in February and there is limited access to its books and records.

“It was a company which operated across the wider Midlands area and we are currently working through the information that we do have to obtain a clearer picture of the financial position.

“We have heard from some former employees and some creditors but we are keen to hear from anyone who has had dealings with the company, particularly in the last 12 months.

“That will ensure that the full financial position can be established and that we are fully aware of anyone who may be owed money by the company.”

Any creditors can contact Tony Lozano or Sharon Hill at Poppleton and Appleby on 0121 200 2962.
