About Renewi

We exclusively focus on extracting value from waste

Our vision is to be the leading waste-to-product company – contributing to a sustainable society for all our key stakeholders: customers, employees, our local communities and our shareholders.

What do we mean by waste-to-product? At Renewi, we exclusively focus on extracting value from waste rather than on its disposal through mass burn incineration or landfill.

Of the 14 million tonnes of waste we handle a year, 89% is either recycled or used for energy recovery. We intend to build on that.

We believe our unique waste-to-product approach addresses social and regulatory trends. It also offers the most capital-efficient solution to the effective recycling and management of waste.

Waste no more

Following the merger of Shanks and Van Gansewinkel (VGG), we are much stronger together. We have the scale, capability and resources to drive growth. We will do this partly by investing in new equipment and innovation for the future. By pursuing a clear strategy of investment, expansion and active management across our divisions, we aim to be the leading waste-to-product company.

Our approach to growth is underpinned by three things, all delivered by committed and passionate people:

Local service

We operate more than 186 sites across Europe. Our ability to serve customers locally is a key differentiator and is at the heart of our offering.

Broad product range

Our unrivalled range of innovative waste management products and services is best-in-class and makes us hugely appealing to our customer base.

International expertise

Our deep knowledge and experience from across our international business makes our offering even stronger.
