Ahern Waste Management & Recycling Services was established in Harold Hill in 1948 by our founder Patrick Ahern. Initially the business comprised two Bedford 5 yd3 dropsided tipping vehicles which collected wastes from the roadside for onward transport to the local disposal sites.

In 1961 the company relocated to Crow Lane, Romford and added a fleet of skip vehicles to service the growing demand for waste services in the East London area.

By the late 1960’s the fleet had been further expanded with the addition of mobile compaction vehicles and containers. The company began to operate transfer stations and landfills for industrial and commercial wastes.

Throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s the company continued to provide waste management services for a diverse range of waste producers. This included the supply of secure containers for the safe disposal of asbestos at our own landfill site.

In the early 1990’s Basildon transfer station and operating centre was established to service the needs of waste producers in South Essex.

In 2005 Ahern transferred their head office and main operational activities from Crow Lane to a purpose built Materials Recovery Centre in Oliver Close, West Thurrock.

Ahern Waste Management Services provides a comprehensive waste & recycling collection and treatment service to its customers.

From our purpose built Materials Recovery Centre in West Thurrock we manage a fleet of over 30 waste collection vehicles and operate two waste recycling centres servicing waste producers in the East London and South Essex areas.

We employ over 70 staff across our business, many of whom have significant operational & customer service experience, who can offer advice and guidance regarding the most appropriate collection, treatment and disposal methods for most hazardous and non-hazardous wastes.

As an organisation, we are committed to recycling and landfill diversion programmes and have targeted to achieve a zero to landfill approach for all outputs from our material recovery facility by the end of 2013 (as of July 2012, landfill diversion had reached 91%).

As a long established, independent company we have longstanding relationships with many waste treatment and disposal facility operators enabling us to offer the full suite of treatment and disposal options for your wastes including Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT), Energy for Waste (EfW) and composting.
