Malcolm Mcardle, Ace’s managing director, will continue to head up the business from its depot at The Whins in Alloa.

He said: “It’s unfortunate that due to circumstances outwith our control Ace was forced into administration. Roger’s purchase of the commercial and industrial division of the business has meant we have retained all 13 of our staff and we will continue to operate from our depot in Alloa.”

Green added: “The acquisition of Ace is a very exciting development as it expands our offering to the market. It is an exciting time for the waste industry.”
