London Stock Exchange Group 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2018

We’re proud to be included in the report for the fourth time in five years!

SWRnewstar’s sustained growth, averaging 25.2% per annum over the last 6 years, is testament to our innovative approach to recycling and resource management helping customers.

1000 Companies to Inspire is London Stock Exchange Group’s annual celebration of some of the fastest–growing and most dynamic small and medium–sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK.

"As a broker, we are able to deliver the solution that our customer really needs through our regional supply chain," says Andy Butler, CEO. "Being totally agnostic to the collection equipment in depots we find the right supplier to deliver the right solution and, as a result, help customers’ increase their green credentials, whilst driving down cost at the same time."
