Swedish firm officially arrives in UK market following acquisition of O’Donovan Waste and GBN Services 

SORTERA, one of Northern Europe’s leading waste-management operators, have officially launched in the UK, as GBN Services and O’Donovan Waste Disposal formally merge following the company’s acquisition of the two London-based companies last year.

The merger sees Sortera assume responsibility for six existing sites – Rochford, Harlow, Edmonton, Uxbridge, Tottenham, and Wembley – previously owned and operated by GBN and O’Donovan, as well as close to 400 members of staff.


Sortera's entry into the UK market follows their resounding success in providing high-quality waste-management solutions in the Nordic region. With an unwavering dedication to environmental sustainability and technological advancement, Sortera aim to spearhead transformative changes within the UK construction, recycling, and waste-management sectors.

Expressing his enthusiasm about the company's expansion into the British market, Mark McCleery, managing director of Sortera UK, commented: ‘We are thrilled to introduce Sortera's innovative approach to waste management in the UK market.

‘By integrating the expertise of GBN Services and O'Donovan Waste and implementing the values that have made Sortera so successful in the Nordics, we’re excited to bring the kind of innovative digital solutions, international sustainability insights, and operational excellence that address the evolving needs of the construction, recycling, and waste-management industries. 

‘There has been a huge team effort over the last few months to get us to this moment and we can’t wait to hit the ground running now that we are officially.’
