Aasvogel has a reputation for innovative waste management solutions and we strive to maximise the inherent value of your recyclable waste and control any disposal costs, professionally and responsibly.

Why we all should be reducing waste that is sent to landfill
Alongside being damaging to natural ecosystems, there are many practical reasons why we all need to be actively doing our bit to reduce the amount of waste that end up at landfill sites.
The Emission of Greenhouse Gases
As we all know, greenhouse gases are a leading cause of global warming. Consequently, as more material is allowed to decompose naturally at landfill sites, more greenhouse gases are emitted which in turn lead more harmful UV rays reaching the Earth’s surface. In the long-term this process will lead to raising surface temperatures and sea levels and also increasing our risk of skin cancer. Clearly, by reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill sites present many benefits not only for our planet but for ourselves as well.
At Aasvogel we recognise our statutory duty to comply with all safety, health and environmental legislation and we strive to achieve the highest standards in all matters relating to the safety, health and welfare of our employees and anybody else who is affected by our activities.
As a result, we are actively involved in reducing landfill which is shown by our continual investment in infrastructure, vehicles and our waste transfer station in Wantage, Oxfordshire.
