School Waste and Recycling Services

What do we offer?

We offer a flexible service for Swindon schools, which can be tailored to your needs, to ensure you receive safe and reliable collections for your school waste and recycling.

You can choose to have your general rubbish and/or paper and card recycling collected from a selection of containers and at a frequency that suits you. Options include;

• Large 1100L euro bin or smaller wheelie bin containers

• Weekly, fortnightly, monthly or tailored collection frequency

• Term time only or full year contracts with the ability to request additional lifts at any time

We can provide timed collections to avoid school drop off and pick up times. A site risk assessment is performed prior to any collections taking place, where we can offer advice on the best way to collect/store waste, so that we can ensure the highest level of safety.

We will ensure you meet your statutory obligations by providing your Duty of Care documentation at no extra cost.

Why choose us?

Based in Swindon, we employ skilled and experienced local labour and are able to provide a truly local service from staff who know the unique needs of your school.

With a commitment to resource efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions, all paper and card collected is recycled into new cardboard packaging and all general waste we collect is treated and made into Solid Recovered Fuel.
