Specialist Waste Recycling

SWR was founded in 2007 with three key objectives; to deliver excellent service, maximise recycling and establish cost savings for our clients – and those principles continue to underpin our business today. Working with a network of trusted partners who each bring their own capabilities to the table, we are able to design and deliver complete waste management services that work regardless of location or waste type. The entire service is managed by SWR, providing clients with a single point of contact for all waste issues and a single source of comprehensive reporting. Our approach is a consultative one – and a successful one. By helping businesses improve their environmental performance over the long term, we help them make significant cost savings through a reduction in unnecessary or uneconomical spend on waste. Our story Since 2007, we’ve been one of the fastest-growing waste management companies in the UK. We’ve built a network that spans the length and breadth of the UK, with a head office in Alton, further offices in Edinburgh and Daventry. This means we are able to offer local expertise, conduct on-site training, carry out on-site issue resolution and complete site audits easily and efficiently nationwide. We have 70 staff, 20 of whom are our customer service team, and during a typical month we will successfully complete over 50,000 scheduled container collections across 5,000 customer sites. We’re continuing to expand our capabilities too, with the recent acquisition of a company called RUR3 – which specialises in food waste procurement and disposal.
