Yorkshire’s leading provider of sustainable waste resource management and commercial recycling solutions.
Our business model has developed significantly over recent years and now encompasses the production of SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel) and RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) materials.
The business employs 248 full and part time staff across 10 material reclamation facilities, collectively licensed to process 500,000 tonnes of waste per annum.
AWM also acts as a nationwide broker to manage clients requirements anywhere in the UK.
With a strong infrastructure of collection vehicles and sites to process, AWM is not reliant on third parties to manage services.
Last year, AWM produced 140,000 tonnes for diverted waste to energy, enough to power 20,000 homes & 30,000 businesses.
In 2015, AWM held a 6% share in the UK export market of refuse derived fuel. We currently have off take contracts with 4 Combined Heat & Power Plants in Europe and 1 in the UK generating 119,000 Mwh of energy from the RDF we produce.
2015 also saw AWM plant 7,000 trees as part of a quarry restoration project, creating a wildlife corridor which provides ecological gain, supports biodiversity and benefits local landscapes.

What our customers say
Paul Speake Sheridan UK
“We’ve worked with AWM for many years and always find the service prompt and reliable. The reporting and compliance details are important for our business, and we’re keen to keep our recycling rates as high as possible.”
Ben Lukey AMA Waste Services
“AWM are our preferred waste disposal partner in the West Yorkshire area. They have provided waste and aggregate services on a daily basis for AWM Waste for a number of years now. It is critical for a company like ourselves to have services carried out by reliable and professional suppliers, our clients include Blue Chip Companies and High Street Brands and it’s therefore imperative that our services are supplied on time in a professional manner, whilst meeting the highest health and safety standards. There is no better example of one of our suppliers meeting this criteria than AWM, who put drivers through extensive training and who have an excellent customer service team in our office. AWM have invested in cutting edge recycling technology at their premises and have one of the most impressive set ups we have seen across the UK. Everyone at AMA Waste could not recommend AWM highly enough and we look forward to working with them for many more years.”
Louise Hartley Leeds Beckett University
“Leeds Beckett University have been working in partnership with AWM since February 2014 and during this time we have not only received excellent service, but have also seen our working relationship grow. During the mobilisation period, AWM worked very hard to understand and accommodate the needs of the University. We moved from a single waste stream to segregating general, food and dry recycling so AWM worked with us to help educate both staff and students in the changes. We expected the transition to take longer than it did, but I credit the success to the initial planning that both organisations took.
