Waste Collections

Working across the UK, we deliver vital services to keep local neighbourhoods clean and tidy – through collecting household refuse, cleansing streets and maintaining public parks and grounds as well as operating 40 household waste recycling centres.

Our Waste Collections teams work hard to deliver a service which protects the environment and supports people to reuse and recycle more – reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. We work with local authorities to deliver a waste service that covers everything from collecting waste at residents’ doorsteps right through to processing, recycling and creating energy from waste.

We make recycling easier with modern household waste recycling centres providing facilities for recyclables that aren’t routinely taken at kerbside collections. Our on-site teams put a big focus on customer service so everyone – residents and local authorities alike – understand the important role they play in protecting the environment through effective waste management.

Litter and general street cleanliness frequently top the list of residents’ concerns, so we create public spaces to be proud of. We work up and down the country to create functional, inspirational places for the public to enjoy by clearing litter and tackling graffiti through our street cleaning teams to landscaping and nurturing habitats as part of the work our grounds maintenance teams deliver. And because each place comes with its own requirements, we use technology to make sure our approach is designed for local needs.
