She joins the company from laundry firm JLA, where she was responsible for marketing and project management. Her appointment brings the company’s staffing level to 14.

Business manager Justin Holley said: “Natalie’s role will be to support our growing account management team and promote Orchard as a one-stop shop for waste, recycling and environmental management.”
