Cheshire West Recycling provide over 320,000 refuse, recycling, food and garden waste collections each week on behalf of Cheshire West and Chester Council. We’re focussed on reducing the impact of carbon on the local environment and are continually looking to recycle and recover more. Waste that can’t be reused is recognised as a valuable resource and used as a fuel to produce power and heat. Less than 1.5% of all waste we collect has to be landfilled.
We employ over 300 local people and operate 73 efficient frontline vehicles running on low carbon, renewable and sustainable Hydrogenised Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuel. Our in-house Fleet Services provide cost effective and efficient vehicle maintenance and servicing to our own fleet and some of the Council owned operational fleet.
Established as a Council owned company in October 2019, our cooperative principles embrace a collaborative approach to minimising the impact of waste on our community. Everybody has a part to play in leading positive environmental change to create clean and safe places to live and work for future generations. We are guided by Our Values; safe, trust, innovative and responsible. People are at the heart of everything we do to achieve zero waste.
We have a long-term strategic vision, Vision 2030, with five key pillars of performance, ensuring accountability and building upon sound long term foundations. We’re a key enabler for the Council, bringing a unique level of technical expertise from which both the Council’s own departments and other council companies can benefit.
We are led by Our Purpose: To work with the communities we serve, leading positive environmental change to create clean and safe places to live and work for future generations.
People are at the heart of everything we do, and everybody has a part to play. Our cooperative principles embrace a collaborative approach to minimising the impact of waste on our community and work tirelessly to achieve zero waste.
