Environmental and Waste
What we do
We protect our environment by encouraging you to reuse and recycle more – reducing the amount of waste going to landfill, creating energy from waste and keeping our streets and public spaces, clean.
Our waste collections teams understand the importance of an effective bin collection service – because it directly impacts the cleanliness and appearance of your neighbourhoods. We work with local authorities to deliver a waste service that covers everything from the doorstep right through to processing, recycling and creating energy from waste.
We make recycling easier for everyone with modern household waste recycling centres (HWRC) providing facilities for you to bring along your recyclables that aren’t routinely taken at kerbside collections and safely recycle them. Our on-site teams put a big focus on customer service so everyone – residents and local authorities alike – can do their bit in diverting waste from landfill.
Our highly skilled teams work up and down the country to create functional, inspirational places that we can all enjoy and appreciate, by clearing litter, tackling graffiti and maintaining award winning toilets through our street cleaning teams to landscaping, nurturing plants and habitats and creating complex planting schemes as part of the work we do through our grounds maintenance teams.
Protecting our environment now in the future needs everyone’s involvement. Through our educational centres and awareness projects we provide space for community groups, schools and local networks to learn more and understand the important role we all play in protecting our environment by reusing and recycling our waste.Find out what we think the future of environmental and waste is
