We aim to extract the most value from the waste we collect and process by ensuring recyclable materials such as glass, paper and plastic are processed to be used again or turned into other valuable resources.
We are always looking for new ways to recycle or re-use more waste and divert as much as possible away from landfill.
What we offer
We provide local authorities and businesses with a cost-effective, flexible and responsible solution to managing their recyclable waste.
Our range of services includes the collection and handling of mixed dry recycling, as well as specific streams of recyclable waste such as glass, paper or plastics. We’ll even collect your waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
We are the UK’s leading operator of household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) for local authorities, with 87 sites and more to come. We’ve also invested in recycling technology to extract the most value from the waste we collect and process.
Our network of 11 materials recycling facilities (MRFs) sort the materials that can be recycled – metal, paper and cardboard, plastic, glass, household goods and garden waste – so that we can send it to be made into new products. Some of our sites even separate the recyclable items that end up in general waste collections.
And the 12 compost plants we operate turn more than 100,000 tonnes of organic waste into a useful product that we share with local authority partners and use to restore our former landfill sites.
