About us


Our history and vision

If you live in Bristol, our residential crews will most likely pick up your household waste and recycling each week.

But did you know, we support business properties in the area too? We provide a tailored offering of services, from waste and recycling, to site clearances, specialist deep cleans, and facilities management to create a bespoke package for you.

Sustainability in waste

We launched our business offering in 2017 and since then we have trained our staff to provide best-in-class service. With a focus on educating the business communities of Bristol to look after the environment, we put sustainability at the heart of what we do.

We get involved in green initiatives wherever possible and have been involved in the Bristol One City Plan since it began. The plan brings together public, private and third sector partners within Bristol who share an aim to make Bristol a fair, healthy and sustainable city.

Similarly, we continuously try to support and educate our customers in how to raise their recycling rates, minimise their waste and live a more sustainable work life.

Award-winning campaigns

As well as this, we have numerous city-wide, award-winning campaigns aiming to increase food recycling, reduce littering and clear up our environment.

Our Slim my Waste, Litter Hurts, Waste Nothing Challenge, Great Bristol Spring Clean and For Cups Sake campaigns have opened people’s eyes to the types of things they can personally do to help Bristol stay cleaner and greener.

Our City

Being a Teckal company, wholly owned by Bristol City Council, any surplus we generate is reinvested back into the City. Whether improving our services or the environment in which we all live.

We have no interest in making a profit for non-Bristol shareholders, freeing us up to be able to focus on meeting our City’s ambitious environmental, social and economic objectives.

Keeping the City green

By choosing us as your waste management provider, you are contributing to a greener Bristol overall.

As we already service businesses in Bristol and the surrounding areas, we are not adding to our carbon footprint by supporting you.

We also have electric vehicles that minimise pollution and all of our waste is recycled or disposed of using our network of local reprocessors in the UK.
