Zero was founded by the people behind M&M Waste Solutions, so although the Zero service is relatively new, M&M Waste Solutions has been in the business of skip hire, recycling and waste management for almost 50  years. You can read more about our history on the M&M Waste Solutions website.

We’ve built up our business with a keen focus on high-quality service delivery and excellent customer service, which continues to steer our business into a new phase.

Zero and our Green Promise

Zero was set up in 2021 in response to our growing commitment to environmental concerns. In recent years we’ve invested in state-of-the-art recycling and processing technology to minimise the amount of waste that goes to landfill. Additionally, our entire van collection fleet is electric.

As part of our green promise, we are working on numerous innovative projects including energy initiatives that contribute to a circular economy and new recycling opportunities with charities.
