  5. Our Members

ESA members collectively employ a national workforce of more than 50,000 people delivering frontline recycling and waste treatment services – putting millions of tonnes of waste material to good use each year.

Our members are the leaders of the recycling and waste treatment sector in the UK and demonstrate this through their commitment to the ESA, to sharing best-practice and to adhering to the ESA’s high standards of membership.

To reflect the varied size and activities of our members businesses, we have four different tiers of membership and a directory of members in each tier can be found below.

ESA’s Trade Members are directly involved in recycling and waste treatment activities with an operational presence in the United Kingdom, while Associate Members typically provide support services to the sector through technology, consultancy or professional services.
