Where society sees waste, Viridor sees recourses.  

At Viridor we leverage our industry-leading expertise and technological investment to offer one of the most complete waste-to-resource management solutions in the UK market.

Viridor incorporates a unique in-house trading division, getting the recycled materials back into the economy as quick and efficient as possible. 

But what about residual, non-recyclable waste? This is then fed to our fleet of Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) so that the chemical energy contained in your waste can be recovered and supplied back to the national grid as electricity to power our cars, homes, businesses, schools and hospitals.  

We believe in a world without waste, where reusing, reducing, recycling and recovery are our new normal.  


Please note that on 1 September 2021, Viridor completed the sale of our Collections business and a number of our recycling assets to Biffa.
