Sortera, foremost within collection, recycling, processing, and sale of residual products from the building and construction sector in Northern Europe, strengthens its market position in the construction waste market across Greater London by acquiring Reston Waste Management Ltd. Reston Waste is one of the largest independent waste companies in South West London.

Following the recent integration and rebranding of previously acquired companies O’Donovan Waste Disposal (acquired in 2022) and GBN Services (acquired in 2023) to Sortera, the addition of Reston Waste makes Sortera the largest independent construction waste company across Greater London. The acquisition is strategically important as it extends Sortera’s footprint into South West London, enabling customers to benefit from an expanded service area, enhanced efficiencies and improved response times, serving projects from residential to large commercial developments.

“We are delighted to welcome the Reston team to our growing Sortera family here in London. Reston is a very impressive company with an offering centered on customers and sustainability.  This is very much aligned with the Sortera way of working. Their geographic focus on South London is a perfect complement to our current operations in North and Central London. Our third acquisition in the UK allows us to continue our journey of creating the largest construction waste company with a focus on service, quality and sustainability”, says Mark McCleery, Managing Director of Sortera’s UK operations.

“This day marks an important milestone in the history of Reston Waste. I am confident that Sortera is the best home for the business that we have built over the years and look forward to our joint future together. Sortera’s values are very similar to how we have run our business, especially with its focus on sustainability and customer satisfaction. This transaction ensures our legacy of excellence continues”, says Andrew Reston, Managing Director and owner of Reston Waste.

With the acquisition of Reston, Sortera continues its international growth journey. With a strong commitment to sustainability and quality, Sortera’s ambition is to drive the transition to a more circular construction waste economy across Northern Europe. Reston is part of Sortera from 11th July 2024. This is Sortera’s 22nd acquisition since it was established in 2006. With the new acquisition, Sortera´s turnover will increase to over SEK 3.6 billion.
