Employing 280 staff at 20 locations across Cumbria, our customer base also reaches from the Scottish Borders, across to Northumberland and down to Lancashire.

Our customers range from single holiday lets to property management companies, and corner shops to industrial factories. We have in-house experts and an extensive range of over 50 fleet that enable us to tailor solutions to meet exact customer requirements.

Our operational sites consist of four materials recycling facilities (MRFs), a liquid waste treatment plant, two landfill sites, aggregate recycling plant, and a hazardous waste transfer station.
