The needs of a busy restaurant in Monton are going to be vastly different from a shop in Swinton Square or an industrial unit on Swinton Meadows. With this in mind, we will assess your site from the onset, and one of our dedicated Commercial Development Managers will arrange a bespoke waste management plan for your premises.

You will also be matched with the most suitable storage solutions to suit your specific needs. These range from simple wheelie bins and skips, to enormous RoRo containers and balers for larger volume users.

We collect and recycle all forms of office, leisure and trade waste with our 30-strong fleet of modern collection wagons. They are all equipped to deal with multiple streams of rubbish, before being meticulously sorted at our state of the art 2-acre Material Recovery Facility just outside the M60 ring road.

We have invested heavily in our infrastructure, wagons and our professional waste workers, all of whom live locally and take huge pride in keeping their community tidy and a job well done.

Our collections are scheduled for the same time each week and planned with fuel efficiency in mind, while our drivers will make sure that all bins are returned to the correct spot with brakes applied and lids secured. We will also sweep away any spillages in order to keep your refuse area clean and safe.

Recycling Information For Swinton Residents:

At the moment, we only offer our waste contractor services to business customers in the area. However, if you need to dispose of any household rubbish or detritus which either won’t fit in your domestic bins or Salford City Council don’t collect at the kerb, there are three municipal tips in the area:

Cobden Street Household Waste & Recycling Centre
Cobden Street
M6 6NA
Tel: 07881 385059

Lumns Lane Household Waste & Recycling Centre
Lumns Lane
M27 8LN
Tel: (0161) 794 8832

Liverpool Road Recycling Centre
Liverpool Road
M30 7RH
Tel: (0161) 775 8632

All three centres open between 8am-8pm seven days per week during the summer months, while their winter operational hours are every day between 8am-6pm apart from Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. They are the perfect place to recycle everything from aerosols and appliances, to paint cans and print cartridges.

While none of these are in Swinton itself, there are a trio of smaller recycling collection points in town at:

  • Morrisons

  • The Civic Centre

  • Victoria Park

The Victoria Park facility is just for plastic bottles, cans and glass, while the other two deal with a mixture of the above, as well as paper, jars, clothing and more. For further information, see Salford City Council’s page on the subject.
