Materials Recovery Centre In The South West

Our Recycling Centre on Thorverton Road in Exeter is a purposed built, fully licensed waste processing facility. Here, we handle in excess of 25,000 tonnes each year of our customers dry waste, extracting the recycling and diverting it from landfill.

The residual waste that can’t be recycled is processed externally to produce power for the national grid (this is known as RDF – refuse derived fuel).

This site provides a central location for the dry waste processing that we collect across Devon and Somerset.

In Exeter we also have our HQ, home to our DCW Polymers centre along with our Customer Service, Accounts, Sales and Management teams. We suffered a devastating fire at our HQ back in March 2017, but we moved back in December 2020!

Testimonials
“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."

"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."

Testimonials
"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?"

"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."

“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.”

“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."
