In the modern world of business, environmental considerations are high on organisations’ agendas. Consumers are increasingly scrutinising companies’ CSR values, the government has set stringent recycling targets and poor waste management can prove incredibly costly.
Riverside Waste Machinery is committed to making clients’ big waste worries small. Providing an array of waste balers and associated services, not to mention complimentary waste management consultancy advice, this family business has become a nationally recognised brand in the recycling sector. By listening to clients’ individual waste handling requirements, Riverside delivers solutions that better protect the environment, improve on site safety and cleanliness, and ensure more money in clients’ back pockets – in fact, it is even possible to generate a revenue stream from the sale of baled recyclables!
I’m Jonathan Oldfield, Riverside’s managing director. I began my career as an apprentice mechanic, combining my love for motors with my practical, problem-solving mindset. However, the opportunity arose to join the family business, so I came in at a grass roots level and worked my way up. I've had to earn my stripes across every area of operations, which is probably why I’ve maintained a hands-on role as MD and love the variety that comes with each day.
