A Halifax woman is celebrating after being named as a bright young business star.

Lisa Mullally, 35, from Siddal in Halifax, joined national company Fairport Containers in spring 2014, to head up the recycling banks arm of this waste container specialist.

Named by a business magazine as one to watch, Lisa, a former pupil of Calder High School, Mytholmroyd, was appointed as recycling bank account manager, responsible for co-ordinating and overseeing the firm’s new service offering of refurbishment, remodelling, repair and manufacture of recycling banks.

In the past few months, Lisa has established the new recycling banks service and secured a raft of impressive new contracts.

Lisa said: “It’s been a really busy year for me developing the new recycling banks service and securing contracts with a range of companies including leading UK charities.

“I have also worked with local charities such as The Fire Fighters Charity throughout parts of Yorkshire and Save The Mothers Trust and various Islamic charities in Bradford.

“My goal is to get the message out to all companies requiring these services that we are a one-stop-shop for all things relating to recycling banks and so far, this seems to be working.

“I am delighted that my hard work has been recognised by such a well-respected business magazine.”

Recently, Lisa has excelled further by taking on another product within her division and is now buying, selling and refurbishing 770 litre to 1100 litre trade waste bins.

Lisa added: “My aim for 2015 is to contact all local councils across the UK, starting with my roots in Yorkshire, to buy, sell and refurbish trade waste bins.”

Lancashire Business View recognised Lisa in its annual Young ‘Uns review, which takes a snapshot of emerging business talent in the county under the age of 36 and stated: “Lisa’s big idea is to make it easy for customers to access the full range of recycling bank services and, in the future, Lisa will focus on generating more new business.”

Fairport Containers is the UK’s longest-established provider of waste container services.
