Opportunities open with dynamic family-owned Re-Gen Waste

Entrepreneur NI recently spoke with Managing Director of Re-Gen Waste, Joseph Doherty, who – despite the naysayers – co-founded the multi-million pound waste recycling company in 2004.

Now almost 20 years in business, Joseph’s story is a comprehensive one. One thing which he does champion is the significance of having a ‘very good team of very good people’.

Joseph said: “A lot of our senior people here have been with us 15+ years so they know what we’re thinking before we think it. That’s built over time, you can’t just make that happen over a year, it takes years – that takes you going through bad times and seeing how you handle it.”

At Re-Gen Waste, the vision since inception has been the continual improvement in recycling across the UK and Ireland. Their objective is to bring customers closer to their objective of zero landfill from domestic mixed dry recycling.

To achieve this aim, Re-Gen Waste employ the best people across a variety of areas within the company.
