What happens to my waste?

In the past we used to think of waste as something that has to be ‘dealt with’. We sent millions of tonnes of waste to landfill and didn’t think too much more about it. 

But waste cannot be ignored anymore. It’s time that we all threw away our old thinking about waste and recognised its value as a resource. 

Working with us, you can be confident that we will do everything that we can to squeeze value out of waste.
