The Environmental Services Association (ESA) is working to transform waste and resource management in the UK. Our work helps enable our members to turn Britain’s waste into valuable resources whilst protecting the environment.

Our industry provides services which are essential to modern life. The companies that make up our sector collect the waste materials produced by households and businesses across the UK, treat it responsibly, and turn a large percentage of it into new resources and energy for the nation.

In recent years the industry has transformed itself:

  • Ten years ago, over three-quarters of Britain’s waste went to landfill (compared to well under 50% today)
  • resource & waste management was chiefly focused on the logistics of collection and transport.

While these still matter, the industry has developed a range of technologies to treat waste materials and extract value from it. Innovation is a constant feature of modern waste management.

ESA is at the forefront of debates about waste prevention and recycling, playing a vital role in driving higher standards within our industry.
