Westminster Waste Limited is a family run company formed in 2010, bringing together a team of experienced staff with the aim of building the finest Construction/Demolition waste recycling company in London.

Still a young company, we are leading the way in ensuring zero of our waste goes to landfill, and building the most efficient and reliable fleet in the industry. We’re proud to put our name to it says David Tucker – Director, William Teale is our Transport Manager and elected Fuel and Emissions Champion and he explains how important FORS is to our Company.

We came across FORS when tendering for work across London. When we looked at the requirements and benefits of joining the scheme we saw that they fitted in perfectly with our ethos of improving safety whilst complementing our drive to improve fuel efficiency and reduce our environmental impact.

 All our drivers have completed their Safe Urban Driving course which was funded by the Transport for London. We have also invested heavily in vehicle safety systems such as 360 degree cameras, nearside proximity sensors and audible alarms for all our vehicles. We have also recently added an additional camera inside the cab to monitor driver behaviour.
