The waste and environmental specialist, ATG Group, has secured a £3.5m contract in the Republic of Ireland.

The company, based in Coleraine, recently invested £1m in its business to create 14 jobs.

The new contract was secured with the Irish Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. It involves disposing of contaminated dredge material.

Managing director Dr Mark McKinney said: "In the past three years, our sales have more than quadrupled.

"Our reputation in the waste recycling sector is rapidly growing."
