Waste & Recycling

Local government spends around £1.7bn on waste services each year. This spend represents a huge opportunity for savings, for looking at innovative ways to approach waste and recycling. iESE have worked with 98% of local authorities to look at efficiency, cost reduction and income generation. We continue to bring authorities together to leverage the sector’s shared buying power, while maintaining a focus on getting the best services for your local residents.
