For over 35 years we have been responsibly processing waste as a resource. We sort and separate our waste to ensure it is recycled and re-used wherever possible. This “closed-loop recycling” reduces the potential negative impact of processing waste, while providing a superb source of secondary commodities for UK manufacturers.
We want to become a zero-landfill company and are committed to helping our clients achieve that goal too. With 99% of all the waste processed at our Greater Manchester facility being recovered, recycled or diverted from landfill.
Aside from our recycling and re-purposing operation, we also recognise that our support activities and services can have an impact on the environment. We are taking steps to reduce our own waste, pollution and lighten our carbon footprint. Our environmental strategy reaches all areas of our business and includes working with internal and external stakeholders to continually make improvements in our environmental performance.
Our approach to delivering the best value for our national customers focuses on using partners to deliver a service on our behalf. We refer to our suppliers as partners, because that is what they are.
We have a ‘together we can achieve more’ mindset, and realise that long-term collaboration on projects will always result in an environment where our customers needs are put first.
At the heart of our business are our people and we are committed to providing a safe, inclusive and collaborative working community. We care deeply about everyone’s wellbeing and this embraces both physical safety and mental health. Everyone has a role to play in building a strong, resilient and positive culture. Our team are supported to bring their ideas, creativity and experience to every interaction with both colleagues and customers.
We also passionately believe that by identifying people’s talents and encouraging them to shape their own career path, we can build a culture ensuring everyone can flourish and reach their potential.
We recognise that we are a part of, and have responsibilities towards, the communities we operate in. We want to continue to make a real difference where we can, with a promise to facilitate long-lasting change.
We believe building partnerships is the greatest way for us to add value to the community and offer contributions to those organisations, most in need, by addressing key social and environmental issues.
