Our Story

The Green Waste Company is a local, family-run business beginning in 1999, with years of proven expertise in waste management. Holding a legacy of four generations of farming in Cornwall.

We are committed to looking after the environment by minimising the dumping of waste in land fill sites. We believe through local recycling we can reduce waste disposal and improve Cornwall's carbon footprint in a most cost effective and time effective manner. This directly supports our conviction that local solutions for Cornwall are vital in this era of globalisation and high fuel costs.

We take bulk material and turn it into useful products, reducing the environmental impact on the Cornish countryside. Our team of qualified, experienced and environmentally-aware staff offer a bespoke service to cater for your recycling and waste needs.

As part of our full commitment to caring for the Cornish landscape we use a ground source heat pump to warm our offices, we also recycle clean and dirty water, whilst our land is farmed sustainably through the use of compost produced on site.

We believe that through participating with the local Cornish community we can help others to engage in recycling and further realise the significance of sustainability for Cornwall’s future.  This is why we regularly welcome local groups for visits such as the County WI, Cornwall Garden Society, Penwith College, Young Farmers Club, Mid Cornwall Machinery group and Round Table. By reaching out to others in our community we can instil in the people of Cornwall the importance of recycling as a way of a life, to protect our future.
