LKM Celebrates its 40th Birthday

One of the UK’s leading providers of waste management & recycling services LKM Recycling in Sittingbourne in Kent is celebrating its 40th year since its founder Gary Eastwood created the LKM brand in the late 1970’s.


LKM has since survived the challenging economic conditions of the 1980’s & 90’s & is now a leading Total Waste Management provider in the UK with services including car recycling, general waste, wood, metal, cardboard, paper, glass and confidential destruction. The firm employs over 70 people at its Sittingbourne and Chatham sites & has its eye on investing in further growth using technology and targeting local employment to drive its growth.


Gary Eastwood, LKM’s founder, stays true to the company’s origins by ensuring that the company provides a great place to work, offers the highest quality of service & remains at the cutting edge of the recycling industry. The company also supports several local charities with employees being encouraged to take part in events to raise money for key local charities such as Demelza House.


Commenting on the historic anniversary, Ryan Eastwood the son of founder Gary Eastwood & now Managing Director of LKM Recycling said “I am extremely proud of what my Dad has built in terms of LKM and am thankful to all our employees who work hard to deliver our customers a great service. I am aware that I have taken on the responsibility for the next phase in our history & am very excited to see our ambitious growth plans in Kent progressing well”.


The company has recently added a new line of business with confidential certified shredding which aims to give companies and households a guaranteed simple, secure way to dispose of paper, hard disks, credit cards & other items.
