What we do.

Shanks Municipal takes municipal waste and diverts as much as possible from landfill, extracting recyclates, and making products and creating clean fuel and electricity from bio-gas.

The UK Municipal Division operates waste treatment facilities for UK city and county councils under long-term contracts, typically 25 years. Such contracts are established primarily to divert waste from landfill in a cost-effective and sustainable way.

Our strategy is to deliver sustained operational excellence under our current contracts and to assist other potential customers without a current solution to their waste diversion requirements and continue to bid for outstanding contracts where we feel we have an advantage.

Shanks Municipal is a division of Shanks Group plc, a leading European independent waste management company, operating in the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands and Canada.
