 Local Authority

Our government approved waste bags

Our range of government approved waste bags are the result of over 20 years spent working with the majority of local authorities, advising and providing bespoke waste management solutions.

We understand that every authority has slightly different circumstances or objectives, which is why rather than offering a stock product; we assign one of our own waste management consultants who will tailor a package to your individual needs.
