Reconomy expands waste and recycling contract with Grafton Group

DIY retailer Leyland SDM has joined its parent company Grafton Group Plc in appointing Reconomy for the management of its waste and recycling services. The outsourced resource management and recycling services provider is managing waste across all store branches of Leyland SDM including general waste, dry mixed recycling and baled cardboard.
