We are an enthusiastic, forward-thinking company with an ambitious vision for Bristol. A key part of this is the clear need to influence behavioural change in the city with regard to waste, recycling and litter, and to involve and empower citizens, community groups and businesses, so that, together, we can make Bristol a cleaner and greener place that wastes nothing.

Bristol Waste Company is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff. Applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage or civil partnership status. 

We support the Ban the Box initiative, a campaign which creates a fair opportunity for people with convictions to compete for jobs by removing the tick box from application forms and asking about criminal convictions later in the recruitment process.

We are also part of the Bristol Equality Charter, a commitment Bristol organisations make to help improve equality, diversity and inclusion across the city.
