We are owned by the Spanish construction and services group, Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas (FCC) and are one of the UK’s leading waste management and energy recovery companies.
Each year we collect, recycle and dispose of millions of tonnes of household, commercial and industrial waste. We also generate energy from waste, thereby contributing significantly to the Government's efforts to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
The profile of the UK's waste management industry has never been higher, the pressures on local authorities and the economy to reduce waste and maximise re-use and recovery, never greater. Through innovation, service and expertise – cornerstones of the Group's approach – we are committed to working with our local authority partners and industry customers to respond to often complex and far-reaching waste management strategies, to react to increased regulation from the UK and Europe, and to meet demanding waste management targets.
"To be the UK's leading waste management and energy recovery group – working in partnership to deliver best value and sustainable waste solutions to meet the country's needs."
