Shanks Waste Management is the UK arm of Shanks Group plc, a leading international sustainable waste management business.
With almost 600 employees, we carry out three main activities in the UK:
- Household waste recycling and processing;
- Making lower-carbon alternatives to fossil fuels;
- Converting food waste into renewable energy and bio-fertiliser
Shanks is particularly committed to working with local authorities to help them recycle and recover waste that would otherwise have gone to landfill. We currently provide services to 26 local authority areas, which include some of the largest contracts ever awarded.
