North East based O’Brien Waste Recycling Solutions are to invest £6M to build an all new dry-mixed material recycling facility in Hartlepool. The development is on the same site as their existing skip waste recycling MRF (mixed recycling facility), which opened last year and sees the growing regional firm continue its expansion in the Teesside area.

Contract wins fuel £6M Teesside expansion for Waste Provider O’Brien
“We are committed to bringing new jobs to the Teesside area.?-Nathan O'Brien, Managing Director

The business also has a vehicle and plant fleet maintenance operation in Hartlepool, which is central to its North East operation. The new build follows back to back contract wins in the area which will see O’Brien processing household recycling waste for Middlesbrough and Durham County Council. The expansion in the area will bring a planned 50 new jobs into the Teesside area within the next 9 months, secured for at least 5 years.

Development will not stop here however, with plans afoot to build a specific glass MRF on the same site, which will enable the rapidly expanding business to process glass materials produced by regional householders.

Nathan O’Brien, Managing Director for O’Brien Waste Recycling commented:

“We are committed to bringing new jobs to the Teesside area. We’re acutely aware of the on-going concerns of secure employment in the area and we’re hoping, although not on a huge scale, to assist with this by developing our Teesside presence. Our reputation in the North East as a responsive, service-driven business which deals with waste responsibly is growing. As well as the recycling plant development we will be opening a new office in Hartlepool in 2017 which will house finance, admin, sales and contract managers to ensure that our service levels are met and our expansion continues across Teesside”.


O’Brien Waste Recycling celebrates its 10th anniversary in October 2016. During that time it has grown to a £30m turnover organisation with employees across 6 facilities. The business operates 6 MRFs (Material Recycling Facility) in the region and offers commercial skip, bin and FEL services. Their goal is to continuously provide innovative solutions, great value, environmentally friendly and reliable waste recycling solutions to any size business.
