“We recognise that we provide essential services to all of our customers and want to reassure everyone that we are doing everything we can to ensure that these services suffer the minimum disruption during this difficult time. Detailed contingency plans for all relevant customer groups are in place to help achieve this. We must however protect the health of our staff and the communities we serve and that may result in us having to change the timing or frequency of services, and to delays in us being able to respond to your requests. We will do our best to keep you updated with changes to services as promptly as we can. If you do have further questions please contact us via the relevant W Maw Recycling Ltd channel.

We greatly value your patience and support during this unprecedented time.”

Our business policies and actions relating to your Services:
It is important we all work together to reduce the risk posed from Coronavirus. W Maw are implementing the following policies and actions in relation to the current situation:
We are supporting the health and well being of our colleagues and staff, managing business continuity, providing clear and timely communications and minimise service disruption.


Social distancing - Our drivers will avoid contact with you and your employees. 

Social distancing applied across our workplaces. 

Please can our skip hire customers pay by card when ordering if possible, this will minimise contact with our drivers so they can adhere to social distancing. 

All non-essential business travel has been stopped. 


Hand washing - Frequent hand washing is essential and should be done for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, or hand sanitiser if soap is not available. 

All our drivers are sanitising regularly and we have increased cleaning on vehicles and operational equipment.


Increased cleaning - We have increased the frequency and depth of our cleaning routines across our office and communal working spaces. We are asking everyone to follow our hygiene protocols


Self isolation - Anyone who displays symptoms or if they have people in their household with symptoms (a high temperature and / or new continuous cough) has been asked to follow government advice and stay at home for the required period of time. We will send colleagues home if they attend work and display any symptoms.
We will continue to operate as normally as possible, however are aware we may need to make changes to some services. All the latest updates will be available on this page.


The UK’s largest waste and recycling companies, along with industry and local government associations, have issued a joint statement to the public urging residents to follow government advice on how to manage their household rubbish to minimise the spread of coronavirus to waste workers.


Customers are urged to follow the government’s advice to anyone who feels ill, whether they are diagnosed with coronavirus or not, to self-isolate and place all their waste in their general rubbish bin, whether it is recyclable or not, and double-bag it, waiting for 72 hours before placing it out for collection.


The waste sector has been deemed a ‘key industry’ by the government, fulfilling a call made by the ESA on Thursday (19 March) last week. This means that waste operatives have been deemed ‘key workers’ and are exempt from government advice to stay at home.


Please stay home, stay safe, protect yourself and protect others.
