Local authority spending has been reduced by 20% since 2010, so it is crucial that councils reduce costs, deliver value for money and continue to provide the wide range of services people have come to expect - all the while improving recycling rates and reducing their carbon footprint.
Helping our customers to do more with less
Austerity measures dictate that local councils need to do more with less. So, improving recycling rates and reducing waste going to landfill is crucial. This demands an increasingly sophisticated waste management solution to extract as much value as possible from waste streams.

Our tailored recycling and waste collection solutions ensure an efficient service to over 40 local authorities across the UK, serving more than 8 million residents. So, our partner local authorities are able to deliver safe and reliable services to residents while saving precious resources and improving street cleanliness.
Finding efficiencies while reducing carbon footprints
Our local authority customers are also able to achieve big energy and carbon savings which not only means councils get to meet their environmental targets, but the annual savings can contribute to local economic development and boost already-stretched budgets.
On average, the environmental services we provide to local authorities helps them to save £250million, while cutting CO2emission by 20,000 tonnes
