WEEE Solutions, the Renfrewshire-based waste management firm, has secured a £200,000 Covid-19 crisis loan.

The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme funding package from Royal Bank of Scotland will be used to help the business stay afloat during the pandemic, and save jobs.

Specialising in uplifting and processing waste electrical and electronic goods, it employs 41 members of staff and remains confident that because of the funding, it will be able to retain the majority of its workforce post Covid-19.

Currently, WEEE Solutions works across Scotland with clients in both the public and private sectors, including in the waste, retail, industrial, commercial, transport and oil and gas industries, with the majority pausing services as workplaces remain closed.

Graeme Douglas, director at WEEE Solutions, said: “Similarly to many other businesses, we have had to adapt to the pandemic quickly and efficiently whilst ensuring that our staff and customers’ welfare and safety is always at the forefront of decision-making.

Mr Douglas said: “The excellent communication, time spent to understand our business and quick turnaround in securing the funding by the team at RBS, has given us significant confidence to operate a skeleton staff and ramp business back up when conditions allow.”
