Education Waste and Recycling Collections

Family-run Fresh Start Waste have long been the waste collection service provider of choice for nurseries, schools, colleges and universities across the North West.

We understand the importance of helping to support future generations make great decisions when it comes to waste reduction and recycling.

Our comprehensive approach to working with schools includes the provision of:

  • Assemblies
  • Poster competitions
  • Many other student-led ideas and approaches

The purpose of our efforts is to help embed waste reduction and recycling into your educational establishment and help you achieve various areas of the National Curriculum including PHSE, Geography, Maths, English, Art and more, whatever the age of the students.

As a business we work closely with the education sector, offering work experience, apprenticeships, and a graduate programme.

We have produced a ‘fly on the wall’ video showing how real recycling happens at our Swinton-based site. The feedback we have received from other schools tells us this aspect sets us apart from our competition.

Some of the many local schools we work with to provide recycling collections and support include:

  • Claremont Primary School
  • Cavendish Primary School
  • Oswald Road Primary School
  • Webster Primary School
  • St Josephs RC Primary School
  • St Bedes College
  • The Manchester College – whole estate

Waste reduction

Waste is never waste until it is purchased and discarded. We encourage students and purchasing departments alike to make good decisions when it comes to purchasing. Considering which items could be reused, refilled or even not purchased in the first place as are unnecessary is a key lesson.

Carbon Conscious

By joining Fresh Start, you and your waste are in safe hands. Having emptied our first bin over 14 years ago, we have grown to be one of the leading waste management companies in the North West, serving 6,000 addresses each day. In addition to operating some of the greenest waste trucks available, we are also committed to capturing our carbon emissions through association with a tree planting scheme.

Over the last two years we have supported the planting of over 12,000 trees locally. Recognising our environmental responsibilities is something we do each day, which is why we have invested £1 million in our waste recovery facility. This ensures that we recycle as much waste as possible, with residual waste being used for energy production. All of this is supported by ‘best in class customer service’, where our customers are treated with honesty and integrity.

What is the benefit of schools working with Fresh Start Waste?

The outcome of waste reduction through our education programme is threefold:

  1. Cheaper waste collections as less overall waste produced
  2. Less non-recyclable waste produced, collected by a licenced waste carrier
  3. Maximum reuse and recycling achieved by working with a waste company that offers ‘Real Recycling’ as we strive for zero to landfill.
