Our Waste Services team supports local authorities and other organisations to manage waste better. 

We work with local authorities, waste contractors, housing providers, schools and other organisations to help adults and children reduce, reuse and recycle their waste. We do this through community engagement programmes, education programmes, marketing communications, consultancy work, staff provision and staff training. We also offer services to monitor and evaluate the impact of waste and recycling schemes and initiatives.

Following the merger of Keep Britain Tidy with fellow environmental charity Waste Watch, we have 30 years of experience of working with people and organisations to manage waste better. Since 2008 alone we have worked with over 100 clients and partners across England and Wales including over 80 local authorities and waste partnerships, WRAP and a range of waste contractors, and have successfully delivered over £8.5M worth of contracts.     

Our projects are managed to the highest standards by an expert team of Project Managers who share over 35 years of experience in waste, recycling and related fields. 

Our on-the-ground community engagement and monitoring and evaluation activities are delivered by a team of high calibre and fully trained field staff, many of whom go on to successful careers in the environmental sector. We are proud to be a Living Wage Employer meaning we pay at least £8.45 per hour or £9.75 per hour in London. Check out our current vacancies. We also have volunteering opportunities for people passionate about helping others to reduce their waste in Cheshire.

Our Waste Services team has been nominated for Team of the Year (Public/Third Sector) at the National Recycling Awards 2017.
