Passing on key skills and knowledge to the next generation is extremely important to us, and that’s why we continue to invest in educational projects.
Since opening a community educational facility on our premises a couple of years ago we have enabled many to learn with us across a broad range of subjects – designed with the National Curriculum in mind – as well as seeing first-hand how AWM divert waste from landfill by producing refuse derived fuel (RDF). Resources include interactive videos, work sheets and waste audits.
The facility, which can accommodate community and school groups, has been created as part of our commitment to engaging with and supporting community initiatives.
Education courses are free and available by contacting Mike Robinson on 0845 456 7128.
The Urban Project
By providing the community with social change we aim to provide a framework for people to interact and communicate freely without inhibition. As a leading waste management company we care about the environment as a whole – not just that which governs our natural resources but that which governs the people that live in it, too.
Because of this, we set up The Zaika Group for women and children from deprived areas to meet new people while learning new cookery skills. Empowering residents to dedicate a small amount of time within their neighbourhoods has a huge impact in benefiting them – both personally and as part of a wider community.
Since then, we have run a string of successful initiatives, including ‘Freshen Up Frizinghall’, which brought local businesses, residents, community associations, local authorities and religious groups together to clean the streets. More than 60 tonnes of rubbish have been cleared over the course of this program – all with sustainability in mind.
Collectively, this group of initiatives is known as The Urban Project. We welcome any suggestions and invite you all to get involved!

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.
