Company History

Albert White first began in the transport industry in 1971 as ‘A G White Transport’. During the 1970’s & 1980’s the business slowly began to grow and saw Albert move into the tankering business. Clive Tyler came to work with Albert in 1980.

1990 was a significant year for A G White Transport as they managed to secure the ‘sludge to land’ contract for Severn Trent Water which resulted in rapid growth of the company. Consequently, Albert acquired the old Mine Site in South Witham, and he and Clive Tyler went into Partnership in 1992, when ‘A G White Transport’ then became ‘Whites Environmental Ltd’.

Over the following eight years Whites Environmental grew to employ in excess of 150 employees and handled approx 40,000 tonnes of bio-solids per week. During this time, Whites Engineering Ltd was borne; a fabrication company and workshop to operate alongside Whites Environmental, servicing their vehicles and building custom tankers and auxiliary agricultural equipment.

At its peak, Whites Environmental was sold in 1998 to Shanks & McEwan. Albert retained Whites Engineering with Clive where they continued to fabricate various equipment in their workshops. The next couple of years saw the partners focus on the development of the now small industrial estate at South Witham, and their property interests at various other sites across central England.

In 2003 the opportunity arose for Albert & Clive to purchase Greentech Environmental (a small tankering company based in Melton Mowbray) and as a result, Whites Recycling Ltd was soon borne. Whites Recycling soon started to flourish, and secure contracts with blue chip companies across central England and Eastern Wales. Around the same time, Albert & Clive acquired the assets of L J Environmental, a London based tankering company, and Recycling International UK, a company operating in Norfolk/Suffolk servicing Anglian Water skips/bins and associated disposal. The Whites name soon started to penetrate the waste industry and as a result they secured many large contracts from the recommendations that came as a result.

Whites Recycling Ltd continued to trade successfully, however following the increasingly stringent regulations surrounding disposal of waste in the UK, and the world as a whole Albert & Clive began looking into disposal facilities/outlets that could withstand future governmental restrictions, which led them to the development of Biogas; a renewable energy generated from landfill gas. Following much research and investigation, Albert White purchased the ex Tate & Lyle Citric Acid Plant in Selby, North Yorkshire in 2007. Over the past couple of years Whites successfully developed and commissioned the effluent treatment plant to sell on. At present, their attentions are now focused on the planning and consultancy surrounding the multi-million pound Biogas plant due to be commissioned late 2010.

Today, 30 years on from their first meeting, Albert and Clive’s Partnership remains strong as they continue to nurture Whites Recycling and push forward to offer innovative solutions within the wet-waste sector.
