Company Information

CONTENUR was founded in Spain in 1984, with the aim of becoming a market leader in the urban solid waste sector. Today Contenur is the number one company in the Spanish and Portuguese markets and one of Europe's key players in this sector, with a solid presence in more than 30 countries around the world.


Since its foundation, CONTENUR has considered the internationalisation of its business activity as a key component in its corporate strategy. We currently have subsidiaries in five European countries: Spain, Poland, Morocco, Portugal, the United Kingdom, France and Italy.

In addition to our subsidiaries, we are proud to have an extensive network of distributors and end users which support CONTENUR worldwide. At CONTENUR our ambition is to continue growing and extending our presence but always offer the best solutions.



Contenur's greatest asset is our in-house professional team, focussed on providing viable and innovative solutions for our clients through research and the development of new products and services.

At CONTENUR, we put particular emphasis on providing continuous professional development for all our staff: By nurturing the skills and potential of individuals we can draw on their capabilities to provide the best possible service for our clients.

Our Product Development team works in partnership with prestigious universities in the development of new products which become the top class systems we offer our clients.

We have the most advanced production and technology methods in our sector, enabling us to pioneer the use of injection-moulded high density polyethylene in the manufacture of high volume containers. Our production capacity, combined with our proven customer relationship management have established the CONTENUR brand as the benchmark in product and service quality and in the ability of our product range to adapt to our clients' most exacting and diverse requirements.



One of our company objectives is to promote respect for the environment and the sustainable development of our cities through the design and manufacture of quality products and services which are attractive to look at and provide real solutions to the challenges of waste management.

Our use of non-polluting production technology and the way we design our products specifically to reduce their environmental impact, making them accessible to all and ultimately recyclable, demonstrate that our company ethos is firmly focussed on the Environment.

CONTENUR was one of the first Spanish companies to implement the ISO 14000 international environmental management standard.

The quality aspect of our products and services has always underpinned every aspect of our company's work. All business streams and processes at CONTENUR are certified to ISO 9001 and 9002 standards. Naturally, all our products conform to the relevant European standard in each case, as certified by the most respected European laboratories and organisations, such as TÜV, LNE and AENOR.



The Biocontenedor model, which is manufactured in 90, 120, 140, 240, and 360 litre capacities has been specifically developed for domestic compost production, making use of organic waste in the home, plant remains from harvest time or from forestry operations (leaves, twigs and plants etc).
