Fresh Start provides a comprehensive waste management service, which includes the collection and recycling of refuse throughout the whole of Oldham and Saddleworth.

Oldham Skyline

Since our beginnings back in 2005, we have aimed to become the largest and most trusted independent waste contractor in the North West, and thanks in part to our hard work and dedication in keeping Oldham tidy, we are well on track to achieving that target.

Our ultimate goal, however, is to be part of the UK’s drive to ensure that 100% of recyclable materials are diverted away from landfill and converted back into useful, sustainable and reusable resources. We are capable of handling practically all types of trade, leisure and office waste, including:

Nowadays, it’s imperative for local companies of all sizes to have their rubbish dealt with professionally, so, whether you run a takeaway in the centre of town, a pub in Uppermill, or have a manufacturing firm on the Westwood Industrial Estate, we have a waste solution tailor-made for your needs.

Of course, every company has different requirements, and a one size fits all approach simply won’t work for the majority. This is why you’ll be paired up with one of our Commercial Development Managers who will thoroughly audit your site, arrange a bespoke waste disposal plan, and match you up with the most appropriate tools for the job.

Our range of refuse receptacles is second to none. From simple wheelie bins and skips, to enormous roll-on roll-off containers and the latest compaction equipment for large volume recyclers, we will ensure that you meet your legal obligations and potentially even save money on Landfill Tax.

The routes that our cutting edge collection wagons take are scheduled for the same time each week, and in line with our environmental ethics, optimised to use as little fuel as possible. However, if you find that you need an extra journey, we can make additional pick-ups as required.

If you need a complete and competitively priced commercial waste collection and recycling service in Oldham or Saddleworth, make sure you get in contact with us.

Feel free to explore our site and discover the full range of waste management options available to you. If you can’t find the specific solution that you are looking for, please contact us on (01942) 879 440. Alternatively, you can fill out our contact form. Either way, our friendly customer care team will be more than happy to help.

Residential Users:

We currently only offer our services to business waste clients in the North West. However, if you need to dispose of any domestic rubbish or general waste which Oldham Council doesn’t collect at the kerb, you can visit the local recycling centre on Arkwright Street, just off Middleton Road as you head towards Chadderton.
