Fairfield Recycling (originally called Fairfield Materials Management) was formed in 2003, creating the UK’s first sustainable waste management system on a wholesale market. We were established with support from the European Union, WRAP and a loan from the Adventure Capital Fund (now known as the Social Investment Business). Ware now Greater Manchester’s largest and most successful recycling social enterprise.
We provide waste management services, from waste audits and feasibility studies to implementation strategies to physically managing customer materials and recycling their waste. Recycle waste from the food & drink sector, retail and leisure industry and the public sector, and are experts in dealing with "hard-to-recycle" waste. We have a proven track record of recycling all types of plastics (from plastic film to hard plastics); food waste – be that fruit & veg waste, tea bags, brewery waste; wood in the form of pallets and construction waste; polystrene; green waste and trees (e.g. Christmas trees) and obviously paper and cardboard. We also make and sell high quality compost.
