Our Simple Goal: 0% Waste To Landfill

Dedicated To Reducing Landfill

The Waste Group has a ‘Go Green’ ethos. We’re dedicated to reducing the amount of waste taken to landfill sites, adhering to the very highest environmental and professional standards.

Working with waste doesn’t have to be wasteful. We currently recycle at least 98% of all our waste through our dedicated waste recycling and processing facility. By separating the waste into recyclable and non-recyclable categories, we reduce the amount destined for landfill, helping to protect and preserve the environment.

YEARS AS WASTE CAREER SERVING THE ENVIRONMENT

REUSE, NOT REFUSE

We recycle all wood waste, plasterboard, metal, and hardcore, allowing them to be reused as everything from biomass fuels to road maintenance supplies and more.

In 2014, our skip lorries went ‘green’ too! All of our fantastic fleet are now EUR06 compliant, helping to reduce C02 emissions and minimise our carbon footprint.

But we won’t stop there. The Waste Group is always seeking to improve our environmental policy through training and consultation. We consistently set and monitor new objectives and targets that benefit the public, stakeholders, employees, and, most importantly, the environment.
