Doosan Machinery and the Waste Management Industry

Doosan 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. Doosan 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:

  • 40% of household waste being recycled
  • 52 % of commercial and industrial waste recycled or reused
  • 55% of local waste sent to landfill sites

So, the waste managment industry is a major player when it comes to UK economical growth and Doosan machinery certainly plays its part.
