In March 2008 Veolia Environmental Services was awarded a 25 year contract with West Berkshire Council and is targeting a long-term 49% recycling rate as part of a major boost to recycling in the area.
Residents in West Berkshire are now able to recycle a much wider range of waste from the kerbside.
HWRCs offer a collection point for recyclable materials in accessible locations.
Our IWMF is designed to significantly improve recycling and composting rates.

Love Food, Hate Waste
Every year in the UK we throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food. If we all stopped wasting food that could have been eaten, it would have the same environmental impact as taking 1 in 5 cars off UK roads.
