Develon machinery plays an integral part in the growth and success of the UK waste management industry

The waste management industry is a very diverse industry that is an integral part of the UK economy. A key component in the waste mangement industry is the machinery that keeps it moving. Develon machinery provides a key role, supplying a range of machinery such as large tracked and wheeled excavators, mini diggers, wheel loaders and dump trucks to name a few.

The UK’s Waste Management Industry

The UK’s waste management industry has a total annual turnover of £9 billion. There are 70,000 people employed in the sector across 3,000 companies. The way waste is treated is important for material security, energy, climate change and environmental protection. The UK deals with waste a number of ways.

This includes:
