I started my working life learning operating a weighbridge in a scrap yard over 35 years ago, moved on to running collection transport and then to buying and selling metals and arranging back loading. I Joined a strong regional waste management Company in the mid 80's and worked in sales, operations and business development before moving on within the industry and marketing a recycling and landfill business.

I left corporate life around 2001 and after working on a project for a small waste management company I decided to become self employed and have been working for a great but very critical boss ever since! This is when WMR took shape and now represents all of the things I have learned working for small, medium and large companies in my career.

WMR is for people and about people; it provides services that go that "extra mile" and satisfied customers that refer us to their colleagues.

In the spare time that I have left I like to spend with my wife and our three great kids; I love the sport of football and have played it, coached it, refereed it (!) and (still) watch it, and also still watch the football love of my life, West Ham (as if I need any more stress!)

I have grown to use reading to relax, and look forward to my holidays more and more as I get older, and particularly like cruising holidays... oh and if you know me you know I love wine!

What our clients say

I could not find a reliable glass collection company until another hotelier recommended WMR at a conference and I have used them ever since; now I have recommended WMR to other colleagues and business contacts

General Manager, London Hotel Group

Our loading bay is difficult to access and often busy with other deliveries so my wheelie bins were always getting missed. When the Operations Manager came over from WMR he had a very positive attitude, and ever since we discussed our service issues and changed to WMR we have had no further problems; even if it's impossible to complete a collection I get a phone call and an alternative collection time!

Facilities Manager, Independent Arts Institution

WMR's managers have a depth of knowledge in recycling and I have to say have helped our Company enormously in hitting our green targets; and their clearance staff are always very responsive and polite whenever we have needed them

Regional manager, UK Property Management Company

WMR undertake all my bags collections in London because ever since using them my service problems have gone away

Roll-out Team Leader, Nationwide Services Company

I can honestly say that from the moment I made my enquiry to WMR they have been responsive and provided good ideas to support our major building refurbishment project. The service I have received from all of the staff has also been exemplary throughout, and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services!
