Our History

Hero image truck
When Fresh Start placed its first wagon on the road in 2006, we did so with the vision of becoming the largest independent waste collector within the wide North West Area.

As a forward thinking company, we’re committed to investing in modern technology, such as our multi-functional vehicle fleet. These wagons allow us to collect several waste streams with a single vehicle. This delivers both environmental and operational benefits to the customer. By separately streaming waste, we’re able to improve the percentage of waste that can be presented for recycling within a Materials Recovery Facility.

Our Ethos

Built on solid foundations…

Working with companies that have a healthy respect for financial stability is key to successful trading relationships, clients cannot afford to take a risk with a contractor that is not anchored on solid financial foundations. At Fresh Start Waste Services, our growth is never at the expense of our portfolio of clients.

We aim to be the customers first choice for the provision of waste management services…

We aim to be acknowledged for our professionalism, honesty and integrity.

Our aim is to deliver a quality innovative service, at commercially sensitive rates that gives customers the peace of mind to do what they do best, their job.

Serious about waste…

At Fresh Start Waste Services, we’re dedicated to helping our customers manage their waste obligations in a professional manner. We’ll work with you to ensure you are advised on innovative ways of recycling more of your waste streams.
