Caring For Communities At Home And Abroad

As an established business, we are in a position to support charities at home and abroad to make a difference in communities. We are regular sponsors of local causes and events in the South West, and are proud to work with several charities to deliver education and sanitation projects in Africa. Thank you to our clients and partners who make this valuable work possible.

Child Hope Ministries

Child Hope Ministries is a not-for-profit community-based organisation that was formed by local people with a vision to support, unite and promote community development in vulnerable communities in Jinja, Uganda, and neighbouring districts. Its goal is to promote community empowerment by building facilities to house HIV/AIDS prevention programmes, care services, income generating activities and education.

How are we helping?

In 2014, we donated funds to build a classroom in the grounds of the Child Hope Ministries orphanage, enabling the charity to educate more of its resident children. In 2016, DCW purchased the roof for an expanded children’s home on the site, and we pay the home’s rent each month to enable the charity’s limited funds to stretch further.

Our Work In Kibera

Only three miles from the affluent city of Nairobi, Kibera is one of Africa’s largest slums which houses approximately one million people in squalid conditions. One in five children in Kibera don’t survive beyond the age of five due to the lack of sanitation and the associated prevalence of vermin. DCW has partnered with a local charity, Riziki, to help manage the waste in Kibera.

How are we helping?

We employed four young men who first carried out a major village-wide clean-up around an area of 500 homes during which all waste was removed. They now operate an effective sack collection service for general waste, food waste and recycling. The recycling is sold to traders, the food waste is composted to be sold to local farmers, and the general waste goes to landfill. We also appointed a local manager with an existing commercial waste collection service. We equipped him with a 12-tonne refuse truck to replace his hand cart. This has allowed him to expand his commercial waste rounds to other areas of Nairobi, which in turn subsidises collections in Kibera for those who cannot pay. The project is now self-funding and expanding every year, creating jobs, improving sanitation and engendering more respect for the people that collect the waste.

What our customers say

We are proud that so many of our customers come back to us every time for all their commercial waste disposal needs. You can find out more about what our customers think below.

“GK Signs have been using DCW for a number of years to manage the collection and disposal of our waste. Initially, our relationship was formed to service our site in Exeter, Devon, but this has now developed into a national agreement. DCW are always able to meet our requirements, which can at times be demanding. From the office support through to delivery drivers, DCW are very flexible and fully support GK Signs.”

"Like all companies, this period has been difficult for Twofour Group Ltd. However, we are successfully attempting to return to some form of normal working practices and with the assistance of efficient and adaptable contractors, this goal is hopefully easier to achieve. DCW are without doubt the best waste contractor that we have dealt with, in my 13 years at this company... I would have no hesitation in recommending DCW with their 'Zero to landfill' ethos being an important virtue with our company."
Graham K. McCormick,
Twofour Group Ltd Via email
"As always if you have a problem DCW will help. We have a depot over 200 miles away from the main site that needed help with waste management. One quick email to DCW and the issue was quickly resolved. The simplicity of having all the waste managed from one place and one number to call for help make this a superb company for national services with a local approach."
Justin Holloway,
Bandvulc Tyres Ltd Via email
"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?"
Rhiannon, Hub Manager,
Tavistock Enterprise Hub Via twitter
"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 DCW, 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."
Sarah Rich, Events Manager,
Westpoint, Exeter
"DCW has provided a sterling service to Supacat Ltd. They offer a timely response to enquiries, and their customer service is second to none. DCW has helped us to improve our environmental performance and reduce costs."
Rosie Piper,Sales & Marketing Admin,
Supacat Ltd
“After experiencing a series of inconsistent collections and communication difficulties with our previous waste management provider, we switched to DCW who now handle our general waste and recycling requirements for our two sites in Somerset. We are extremely happy with the excellent service we receive from DCW. The transfer process was easy and simple and it’s handy to have a monthly call with the team. Even though DCW offers competitive rates, we primarily switched to this local recycling company for a better service as our previous provider was unreliable. I cannot fault the DCW team’s work and I look forward to working with them in the foreseeable future.”
Tristan Savage, Managing Director,
Falcon Vehicle Solutions
“We’ve been dealing with DCW for several years now and I am constantly grateful to them for their knowledge and ability to respond to the currently ever-changing situations for the education sector. Always there at the end of the phone when the latest Covid guidance for schools changes and we have to adapt our processes. It’s nice to not have to worry about the waste chain when there is so much else to consider at the moment."
