Environmental Sustainability

Environmental Sustainability is based on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the future, and SWM are committed to this.

We recognize the importance of sustainability because resources won’t last forever, landfill is unsustainable, waste disposal costs are prohibitive and legislation is dictating ever more challenging recycling rates.

Working Towards Zero Waste to Landfill

Protecting the environment through policies and procedures which provide safe and responsible management of waste will help minimise the impact of waste on the environment. SWM have made it a priority to reduce the amount of waste we deposit to landfill. We are actively working towards zero landfill deposits through the combined interaction of efficient operations and a policy of education and co-operation with our customers.

Having access to our own Waste Transfer Station means that waste can be pre-treated and the recyclables removed; giving us greater control over the process.

Turning Waste into Valuable Resource

SWM’s waste management process ensures that we recycle, repair and re-use materials where ever possible.

State of the Art Equipment

SWM have a programme of continual investment which gives us the ability to take advantage of new plant and equipment which is technologically advanced and environmentally compliant. 

Staff that Care

We train and educate our staff so they have the confidence and competency to work safely, responsibly and professionally in order to create an environment that is sustainable both economically and environmentally. 

“Ensuring that we recycle your waste for a better future.
