GRG is a waste to resource management group headquartered in Guernsey in the Channel Islands. GRG companies are active in the transportation, processing and trading of all forms of waste. Every day we turn processed waste material into reusable resources.
GRG waste streams originate from across society, be they from public or commercial sources. The group serves customers ranging from Governments to individuals and businesses from all sectors.

GRG provides infrastructure and services for all forms of solid waste management in large and small economies. Given our Channel Islands heritage GRG has a particularly intimate and unique knowledge of waste management solutions for island economies.

Today GRG employs 100 staff operating across the jurisdictions of Guernsey, Jersey and the Cayman Islands.


Timely and efficient road and sea transportation

GRG waste collection and onward processed resources transportation requires a variety of logistic solutions.

GRG collection services include compactor vehicles, skips, flatbeds and hi-ab lorries onto which different size skips, containers and one tonne bags can be loaded. This flexibility allows GRG to service the needs of all types of customer no matter how large or small.

After the waste has been processed into its onward recycled or recovered form, GRG arranges for its transportation over land and sea. The group has partnerships with numerous international logistic providers, including road hauliers and shipping brokers.

Processing solutions for all types of waste

GRG processes waste depending on the waste stream itself and its collection method (mixed or segregated). All GRG sites have waste licences and regulatory approval for their processing activities. The group operates waste processing solutions for:
  • Dry Recyclables
  • Commercial & Demolition
  • Scrap Metal
  • Waste Oil
  • E-Waste
  • Tyres

Dry MRFHousehold and commercial dry recyclables are processed through a ‘clean’ Material Recovery Facility (MRF). This waste stream originates from a segregated or co-mingled collection from public and commercial sources. The process extracts clean recyclables such as paper, cardboard, mixed plastics, tins and cans.

GRG operate clean MRFs with industry leading plant and equipment designed to maximize the recycling rate from this waste stream.

Dirty MRFCommercial and demolition waste is processed through a ‘dirty’ MRF. The waste originates from a broad range of commercial and public sources in a mixed state, inclusive of all potential waste types. This mixed waste requires specialist processing to maximize reclamation of recyclables and refuse derived fuel (RDF), to minimise the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

GRG operate dirty MRFs with industry leading plant and equipment designed to maximize the recycling and recovery rate from this waste stream.

ScrapThe waste metal originates from commercial and public sector sources. Waste metals include industrial and commercial construction and demolition metal, End-of-Life-Vehicles (ELVs), domestic appliances such as washing machines and fridges, boilers, piping, roofing, and window frames.

Both ferrous and non-ferrous metals require specialist processes to recover the maximum amount of recyclable metal. GRG operates scrap metal recycling facilities using a range of plant and equipment including a shear and shredder recovery system, as well as an ELV Depollution plant (vehicles are drained of all oils and lubricants for recycling before metal processing begins).

Waste OilWaste vegetable or cooking oil is processed into Bio-Diesel through a series of chemical reactions in bespoke plant and equipment. Waste mineral oil is passed through a distillation process for recycling or recovery.

E-WasteE-waste is an ever-growing segment of the waste stream. Companies are facing increasingly onerous compliance laws in the handling and ultimate destruction of personal data. A forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (expected in 2018 but with adoption already taking place) headlines that breaches can lead to multi-million Euro fines. GRG recognizes the importance of this critical regulation and has developed secure destruction services that enable our customers to reach compliance.

GRG provides customers with secure data wiping and data destruction services as well as a full recycling or re-use service for discarded IT equipment. Our accreditation for the secure destruction and disposal of electronic hardware is globally recognized as the highest standard available.

TyresWaste tyres are processed depending upon the end market for the waste material. GRG processing solutions include shredding to various sizes for use as a tyre derived aggregate (TDA), and baling tyres for use in landscaping projects including golf courses and roadways.

Quality is key to maximize recycling and recovery rates

The quality of the processed waste materials is the key to ensure that all materials sent for onward treatment – either for recycling or recovery – can be used as a new secondary resource, in place of virgin raw materials.

GRG waste to resources include:

  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Plastics
  • Metal
  • Aggregates
  • Wood
  • Oil
  • Tyres
  • Computers & Electronic Equipment
  • Refuse Derived Fuel



GRG is driven by the principles of sustainability across all our operational practices and corporate structure.

GRG aims to protect the environment from pollutants and to preserve the world’s limited resources for future generations. Our contribution to this cause is the diversion away from landfill of thousands of tonnes of waste each year, recycling and recovering waste material wherever possible; over 80% of GRG waste material received is either recycled or recovered.
This reduces the world’s requirement to process virgin raw materials and reduces the environmental impact that untreated waste can have on the environment if disposed to landfill.

GRG continually progresses its environmental credentials, working to minimize and mitigate any detrimental impact our activities may have on the environment. GRG always works to meet or exceed applicable waste laws and regulatory requirements.

GRG promotes a core principle of local value creation for all its operational activities. Delivering a positive vocational, social, economic and environmental impact to the markets we serve is a priority for all our work.


GRG shareholders are a mixture of an investment fund and international business leaders, who combined have decades of experience in the waste and resource sectors. Together management and shareholders drive the business forward on a daily basis.

Alan spent his early career building Mayer Parry into the largest scrap metal recycling company in the south of England. Under his leadership the company built up scrap metal exports to over three million tonnes per year, and twice won the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement.

He later left the company to relocate to the Channel Islands.

Having moved to Guernsey Alan acquired Guernsey Recycling (1996) Ltd. The company started in scrap metal recycling and through the acquisition of Mayside Recycling in 2008 diversified into the recycling of dry recyclable waste. In 2015 Guernsey Recycling (1996) Ltd acquired Island Waste, a commercial and demolition waste company to create GRG.
