We are pleased to announce the recent acquisition of East Anglia based, walking floor haulage and bottle bank collection specialist, Indigo Waste Services Limited. The likeminded family-owned company is a welcome addition into the Countrystyle portfolio.

Operating since 2004, Indigo Waste established an expansive glass bottle bank collection service across East Anglia. With over 1500 bottle banks, the company services a variety of customers including Local Authorities, third party recycling companies and SME’s.

Indigo pride themselves on their exceptional service and recycling operations within the community. Utilising its fleet of vehicles and partnerships with like-minded companies, their speedy service enables glass collected to be recycled and back on the shelf within an impressive 30 days.

Jamie Houston, Countrystyle’s Business Development Director, commented: “The Indigo Waste acquisition fits extremely well with our current bulk haulage activities across the whole of the East of England and offers us an established specialist glass and paper collection and recycling operation to expand and roll out across our wider business base”.

Countrystyle has existing operations in the area via its extensive fleet across multiple waste streams. The recent acquisition forms part of wider expansion plans to increase our physical presence and service offerings in Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas.

Through synergies within the Heathcote Holding’s group of companies, Countrystyle has already begun operations from the EnVar Composting site at Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire to offer total waste management solutions for businesses and Local Authorities.

Our ethos  centres around a consultative approach to waste management which is reflected in Indigo’s values. Gary Lee, Director and Shareholder of Indigo Waste, said “the sale to Countrystyle is the culmination of 16 years of building our expertise in specialist bottle bank collections and on-sale of glass bottles and jars for recycling into new glass containers.  We are very happy that Countrystyle’s ethos and approach to customer service mirrors that of Indigo Waste and we are confident that our customers are in safe hands”.

Countrystyle works closely with its customers to provide a total waste management solution. The acquisition of Indigo enables Countrystyle to develop the business further, continue offering exceptional service and provide the opportunity for new and existing customers to engage with a zero to landfill solution.
