Whatever your business, we are in Blackburn 3 days per week offering sustainable waste management & recycling collection services in the Centre and the surrounding towns including Darwen & Accrington

As a carbon conscious company, the environment is at the heart of everything we do. As one of the most widely used collectors in Blackburn we recognise the responsibility we have to our customers and their customers, to leave as small a carbon footprint as possible, not a great big stomp!

That’s why we offer win-win solutions by encouraging our customers to segregate at source. We then reward those efforts by reducing their waste bills.

Waste & Recycling Services – Blackburn

As we have expanded, we have invested in a fleet of modern waste wagons. We have fitted cutting edge weighing and satellite tracking technology as standard, and thanks to these advancements we empty bins at a competitive price, while ensuring that you are never over-charged.

In addition to vehicle investment, we have also committed to class-leading waste management software. Used in conjunction with hand held devices, our bins are lifted and monitored in real time. Furthermore, the equipment is invariably operated by a two man team, aiding collection effectiveness and ultimately keeping end costs low for our clients.

Of course, each business has an environmental responsibility and duty of care to dispose of their rubbish responsibly, and no matter the trade you are in, we can arrange a comprehensive and fully bespoke waste solution plan to suit your needs.

“We have stayed with Fresh Start for a number of years as we are extremely happy with the service we provide. We have a dedicated account manager and always receive a personal service when we require an alteration. Fresh Start fulfil all our requirements and haven’t lost the ability to be flexible, agile and responsive to the changes in our waste and recycling collection schedule required.”

“Choosing a cost-effective, reliable and environmentally efficient waste partner meant Fresh Start was the obvious choice. Sean Martins, their Commercial Manager, has helped us transition to Fresh Start seemlessly.”

“Great service from Fresh Start since we started using their services in 2015. We have a very tight window that we need the collections to work within for our business and we never have any issues with this being met. We always have a 100% pick-up rate.”

“At Yotel, we place sustainability at the heart of everything we do and we are conscious of our impact on the environment and how we minimise our carbon footprint. Partnering with Fresh Start was the obvious thing to do as they are pioneers in their field and will help us meet our ambitious green targets.”

“We would wholeheartedly recommend Fresh Start to any Liverpool businesses, particularly those in the entertainment, leisure or hospitality sector, as the service is incredibly reliable, the recycling is maximised, the cost is competitive and the drivers are friendly and helpful to boot!”
