Slicker Recycling adds interceptor and car wash cleaning service

09 December, 2016

Auto industry waste specialist Slicker Recycling has added a full interceptor and car wash cleaning service through its purchase of the John Rome business from the Avanti Group.

Slicker Recycling managing director Mark Olpin commented: “We can now offer forecourt operators a full environmental and waste package. We can provide specialist interceptor and vehicle wash cleaning and maintenance in addition to our nationwide oil recycling and workshop waste collections.

“John Rome are leaders in interceptor and car wash environmental services and we have worked with this company extensively in the past on a sub-contract basis. Now they are part of Slicker Recycling we can provide a direct, complete package to the automotive industry.”

In addition to linking with oil and waste collection, the cleaning and maintenance services for drainage systems, interceptors and vehicle washes are available separately.

All services previously offered through John Rome are now available from Slicker.

“This acquisition allows us to expand the Slicker offering and also grow the side of the business operated so well by the John Rome company,” said Olpin.

“It is part of our long-term plan to extend the non-oil side of our business and move towards a wider total waste management offering.

“As well as expertise and general business assets we have retained staff, vehicles and equipment and, where appropriate, will utilise existing sites.”
