We’ve been DCW customers for about 3 years, maybe longer. Their Zero to Landfill promise aligns with our ideals, and makes our tenants very happy – they don’t need to sort their waste to know that if it’s recyclable, it gets recycled. Zero hassle, zero to landfill. Accounts and customer services staff have always been very helpful and friendly. If you haven’t tried them, what have you got to lose?

Having recently joined Pathfinder it is apparent that we have a great team of people, a fabulous product and we are in a fortunate position of an excellent sales order book resulting in a positive period of growth.
Pathfinder Homes recently carried out a review of how the business disposes of waste materials, as part of the review we were keen to enter into a partnership. It is early days but the Devon Contract Waste Team must be commended with the support provided during this transition, the daily visits, training and support has been invaluable.
Pathfinder Homes is proud to be working towards Zero to Landfill with Devon Contract Waste.
Adrian Harlock, Operations Manager
As an ISO 14001 recycling company, managing our waste streams is very important to us. Since moving over to Devon Contract Waste for some of our waste, the service has been superb. One call about any issues are always solved quickly. As well as being the most competitively priced there is always an answer for a waste issue. Bandvulc look forward to continuing the newly formed relationship, and hope to move more waste streams to them in the future.
Justin Holloway, Quality and Environmental Manager
As a business we strive to maximise waste for recycling, however as a busy exhibition and conference centre found it difficult with traders not necessarily caring of the way in which they dispose of waste. In working with Devon Contract Waste we have been able to achieve our ambitions and easily, thanks to the fantastic technology they use. We are now proudly recycling the vast majority of waste generated.

Dartmoor Zoo was naturally drawn to use Devon Contract Waste as our waste contractor because of their Zero To Landfill policy. It’s a hard boast to fulfill, but DCW uses pioneering technology which grinds up mixed material waste and separates it into recyclable streams, so that every possible scrap can be recycled, or re-consumed as energy-generating fuel.
The process is the brainchild of MD Simon Almond, who invested heavily in a system that many people said could never work (a story familiar to me at the zoo). The result is that we don’t even have to separate plastic from paper – it’s all done at the depot.
At Dartmoor Zoo, with our emphasis on conservation, it is essential that we practice what we preach, keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible and using only the best and most ethical suppliers.
DCW tops the list of these for me, and has been quite rightly consulted by Local Authorities and other waste contractors. DCW gives freely of their consultative time, encouraging others to follow their Zero to Landfill path, rather than seeking to profit exclusively from it. This ethos is very rare in the modern marketplace, and is another reason that Dartmoor Zoo is proud to endorse DCW.
Friendly drivers, smart new vehicles, and a competitive price doesn’t hurt either.
Devon and Cornwall Police have been working alongside Devon Contract Waste since the award of contract in April 2015 for the disposal of our residual and recycling waste. The contract has had a huge amount of benefits for us not only in not having to separate out these waste streams but saving the amount of space all of the different disposal containers used to take and the ease of the disposal of this waste.
Devon Contract Waste is a pleasure to work alongside of and is always looking for new ways to develop with advancing technology.

It was always a big concern of ours regarding waste disposal and the effect which land-fill has on the environment. Working alongside DCW we were not only able to dispose of the waste in a more “environmentally friendly” way with zero going to land-fill, it also saved us money. A win-win for us thanks to DCW.
