Monks Contractors boosts fleet after welter of contract wins

Monks Contractors is expanding its fleet and taking on new drivers after landing a number of major deals including one with Lancashire Renewables to provide 30 new waste disposal and recycling vehicles.

The Blackburn-based firm, which provides waste haulage, plant hire and drainage services to around 90 clients across the north of the UK, has invested £600,000 in vehicles and trailers bringing the fleet’s numbers to 75 trucks and 75 trailers.

To support the increased scale of operations staff numbers are also on the rise with a new transport assistant recently joining the team, which now has a total of 70 staff.

The recruitment drive also includes a call for HGV Class 1 drivers, a new HSEQ manager and a business development manager role.

MD Chris Monk said: “Since the onset of Covid-19, the waste management industry, like many others, has faced significant challenges – none less than the temporary closure of household waste recycling centres during the first lockdown.

“Our sector has worked together to introduce safety measures and I’m glad to say 100% of our fleet is now back on the roads, and we’re adding to it.

“Despite the pandemic, waste continues to be created and needs to be moved – and we’re focused on driving forward by growing our capacity to meet that demand.”
