New exciting service launched this week for the Devon Area

Launched this week our new FEL ( front end loader ) service for businesses in the Devon area that want to recycle the waste they currently send to landfill. These containers are currently only available from national suppliers who with the exception of pre-sorted recycling send all the contents to landfill in the Devon area.

We can match your current providers quotation and recycle all the contents with the attention to detail that you only get with a local company.

Scania refuse collection vehicles

7th October saw the delivery of two new Scania refuse collection vehicles. These new trucks have the very latest technology in compaction and complete with the very latest Euro 5 engines reduce dramatically the impact on the Environment. These new vehicles will be serving our commercial clients in Exeter , Mid Devon, East Devon , West Devon and Teignbridge areas.

These new vehicles have now increased our fleet to 19 vehicles serving the business community of Devon.


The Waste ( England and Wales) Regulations 2011 will require businesses to confirm that they have applied the waste management hierarchy when transferring waste. This is effective from 28th September 2011.

The hierarchy sets out , in order of priority , the waste management options you should consider:

1, prevention
2, preparing for reuse
3, recycling
4, recovery, eg energy recovery
5, disposal.

In plain English what this means is you now have a legal requirement to treat your waste in accordance with the waste hierarchy , preventing it in the first place , reusing it and recycling it.

Clearly every business has different requirements and on site issues where separation is simply not viable but with our help you can still meet this new legislation.

We can recycle the following waste streams.

Construction waste * glass bottles * food waste * card/paper * plastic * tins & cans * data waste

In April 2012 so long as food and glass is removed from your bins the remaining waste can be treated on your behalf at our new materials recycling facility in Exeter that will use the latest technology in optical sorting to separate up to 70% for recycling.

For help with recycling and money saving programs do not hesitate to contract our sales department by phone or e-mail your enquiry to For those of you that already recycle you may well already be compliant but we can advise you on further options if applicable.
