About NWR

Our Mission

We are committed to helping our customers and partners to better, more sustainably manage their waste. Our aim is to fully close the circular journey of the waste produced, through our ability to manage the whole process – skip hire and business waste collection through to recycling and full material recovery.

We began life in 1995 as a family-run business, Brampton Skip Hire. Today, we are North West Recycling, Cumbria’s largest private waste management provider. Serving Cumbria, South West Scotland, and Northumberland, we deliver greener, fully integrated waste solutions.
