Living and Working from my home village in the North West Hampshire Countryside. I am married with two primary school age Children.
After 8 years studying and working in the agricultural industry, primarily Agricultural Contracting, my career diversified in to the Waste Management Industry. I have been working in both Industries for the last 15 Years.
The Agricultural Waste Regulations which came into force in May 2006, was an opportunity to use my extensive knowledge of both Industries.
This process has culminated with the Forming of Kitson Recycling Limited.
