Who we are

We carry out an essential service and are part of the U.K.’s environmental infrastructure. Working with local communities and partners, we provide waste collectors with a reliable and sustainable local solution for their waste – which would otherwise be landfilled or exported overseas.

Playing our part in the decarbonisation of waste management, the National Grid and society as a whole – we are helping the U.K. deliver on its commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions.
