A customer of a Spalding-based garden waste recycling business has appealed for someone to take on its work after its owner’s decision to stop trading.

Peter Ely (77) of Northons Lane, Holbeach, is urging an entrepreneur or ambitious business to continue the service provided by Green2Go owned by Alan Jesson, who has been forced to quit this month due to ill health and a rise in tipping charges.

Mr Ely praised the service provided by Green2Go whose staff used to collect garden waste from households across South Holland and the Deepings once a week before taking it to an organic recycling centre in Crowland where it is then turned into compost.

“Green2Go started when I was going on about the danger of queuing outside the waste recycling centre in Spalding,” Mr Ely said.

“A man who was down there thought ‘there must be a better way of doing this’ and came up with this service that worked wonderfully well. You would either have your own bags or buy some of Green2Go’s bags for £3 which were then collected on a Monday.”

Green2Go is a previous winner of the Spalding Guardian’s Business Accelerator award.
