Vertas Environmental offers a brokerage and consultancy service. Our highly experienced team (30 years and counting) can offer you a waste and recycling package sourced from the whole marketplace.
We use the waste hierarchy approach of reduce > reuse > recycle > dispose. Going beyond the obvious items such as paper and aluminium we seek ways to recycle more complex items such as PVC and organics.
From chips to strimmers
Vertas provides catering for approximately 400 schools and since 2016 we’ve been converting the used cooking oil from the kitchens into biodiesel. We now want this biodiesel to stay within the group and be used to power grounds maintenance equipment such as lawnmowers and hedge trimmers.
The division is credited with diverting 100% of waste from landfill across the Vertas Group – all waste is either recycled or converted into energy. The next priority is to remove as much plastic as possible from the group’s catering division.
