We continue to have ambitious plans including new and improved depots, further investment in our fleet, the creation of 2 new vehicle maintenance facilities with a further £million capital investment in upgrading our materials recovery facility. We are also driving our commercial business, seeking new revenue streams, exploring additional services that we can deliver and innovating to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.
