Waste can be a valuable resource, and we know how to recover it. That means we can help you cut costs and reduce environmental impacts, using our world-class expertise in waste and water.

Your challenges

You want your business to be as efficient and competitive as it can be, and to run smoothly. That means ensuring you have the right size and type of containers for waste, and timely collections.

Waste can also be an indicator of poor performance and inefficient processes – and it is increasingly costly to have your waste taken away to be landfilled.

There is an opportunity cost too, when the value of the materials in your waste stream is not recognised. Or, if you use water in your processes, and don't economise on its use or recover value from by-products.

Meanwhile, you not only need to comply with all relevant regulations. Customers and staff also have rising expectations of your environmental performance and responsibility.

We understand these challenges – plus others that are sector-specific – and have designed our services to solve them.

Our solutions

Developing solutions for the smarter management of water and waste

We serve more than 30,000 companies and organisations, and operate from 300-plus locations across the UK. So we have the infrastructure and the teams on the ground to provide a reliable, responsive and efficient service.

We work with our customers to develop solutions for the smarter management of waste and water. This involves:


  • Looking at the entire supply chain and mapping processes to identify where the waste comes from, how it is treated and where it goes.
  • Understanding the processes, analysing data, and identifying opportunities to achieve efficiencies and cost savings.
  • Recommending the most cost-effective solutions that divert waste from landfill to productive uses, and where possible, prevent waste being produced in the first place.

Ensuring compliance

SUEZ ensures your organisation’s waste and water are managed in full compliance with the law.

We guarantee that all materials, including those you separate out for recycling, will be sent to a facility licensed by regulators.

Since 2015, four waste streams – namely paper, metal, plastic and glass – need to be collected separately. This is required under the revised European Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EC: “where technically, environmentally and economically practicable (TEEP) and appropriate to meet the necessary quality standards for the relevant recycling sectors”.

We will help make sure your recycling and waste collection is compliant with these TEEP regulations.

Our customers do not benefit only from efficient and cost-effective collection of recyclables and waste.

Behind SUEZ’s front-line services, we employ industry-leading expertise and technologies – not least, our international commodity trading operations and national network of advanced waste and water treatment facilities.

This means we are able to maximise value – for example, through energy generation, composting, wood processing, and production of alternative fuels.
