The story

Enva Group is a leading waste management, recycling and resource recovery business based in the UK and Ireland. It is focused on the industrial, commercial, construction and public sectors, operating in the specialist hazardous and non-hazardous sectors.

Employing more than 1,000 people across its 21 operational facilities in the UK and Ireland, the business trades under the William Tracey Group, Oakwood Fuels and Wastecycle brands in the UK, and Enva in Ireland.

The company was acquired from DCC Plc, a UK publicly-quoted support services company. Exponent partnered with the incumbent team, led by CEO Tom Walsh, alongside our Operating Chairperson Niall Wall who was previously CEO of Ardagh Group for more than 10 years.

We were attracted to Enva Group by the leading position each of the divisions have built in their respective markets, their differentiated service offerings and the strong relationships they enjoy with a broad customer base.

Enva has recently launched their third sustainability report, which you can access here SR22 Sustainability Report (
