English city enjoys growth in waste management industry

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 Regions

In Wakefield, England, a new waste management deal will bring a wide variety of jobs to the city. According to the Wakefield Express, the Wakefield Council reached an agreement with Shanks Group and Babcock Southern Holdings last month to handle the city's waste management services. Significant resources will be invested into the project, which will bring both full-time and temporary waste management positions to the area. 

"It gives us the opportunity to safeguard jobs of current employees who work in this area and provide new jobs in one of the most deprived areas in the district," council leader Coun Peter Box told the news source. 

Residents in Leeds, England, may also find available employment opportunities in the waste management sector thanks to the construction of two waste treatment plants. Cogeneration & On-Site Power Production Magazine reports that the Leeds City Council accepted a proposal in February 2013 that will allow two multi-million pound waste management facilities to create a vast array of positions over the next few months. 

With more positions available to waste management specialists in the UK, professionals could find lucrative, sustainable careers in this expanding industry.
