Shanks on track for the full year

Waste management firm Shanks said yesterday that trading is in line with its expectations for the six months ending 30 September, and remains on track to meet company expectations for the year. Underlying market conditions have been as anticipated, with stable recyclate prices, and ongoing pricing pressures in the Netherlands have been offset by cost savings measures. The group, which also has operations in the UK, Belgium and Canada, said it continued to benefit from the relatively strong euro during the period.
