What we do
Joint Waste Solutions manages a joint waste collection contract with Amey which operates in Elmbridge, Mole Valley, Surrey Heath and Woking. This is saving around £2.5 million a year while maintaining high quality services.
The contract covers all aspects of waste collection including household waste, recycling, food waste, garden waste, bring banks, clinical waste, bulky waste, replacement bins and can also provide a commercial waste service. Other services include street cleaning and associated activities such as street sweeping, bin emptying, weed control, graffiti clearance, and fly-tipping and fly-posting removal.
In addition Joint Waste Solutions works with the Surrey Environment Partnership on a range of activities to reduce waste and increase recycling. These include aligning waste and recycling policies; providing tools and information to make it easier for residents to recycle; educating primary school children on the importance of recycling; and providing residents with discounted compost bins and cloth nappy trial kits.
The Surrey Environment Partnership includes all 11 district and borough councils that are responsible for collecting waste and recycling and Surrey County Council, which is responsible for disposing of it.
