We offer solutions, we keep promises and we care about your waste management needs.

Hi, we’re Cireco, Scotland’s leading complete resource management service and you can rely on us to manage all your waste and recycling requirements. We want to make a positive impact on the environment and everything we do is centred around that.


What we do

For us, landfill is always the last resort and we’ll do our very best to make sure that your waste is dealt with in a way that benefits our planet and the people who live on it.

We work with everyone from businesses – big and small – and local authorities, to individual households to create simple solutions for waste and provide the best value for money. We’re a commercial enterprise backed by Fife Council and the only Tier 1 Scottish company.

Our waste management and recycling services are quick, convenient and clean, which is why we have satisfied customers across Scotland, such as NHS Fife and The University of St Andrews. When we take your waste away, you can trust that it will be handled safely, responsibly and legally and we process it ourselves on our fully permitted sites. You’re in safe hands when you choose Cireco.

We also offer consultancy services in waste, climate change, energy and compliance to the public and private sectors to help them reduce waste and minimise their impact on the environment.

Whatever your waste problem, we can find a solution. When you choose Cireco, you can expect a quality and reliable service like no other. We’re reliable, efficient and we provide excellent value for money. What’s not to like?

The Big Three

From our headquarters in Fife, we employ just over 200 people, most of them local to the area, and we’ve been servicing Scotland’s waste since 2014. We might be small, but we think big – and we promise to do more with your waste. Our green credentials guide us through everything we do and we focus on what we call the ‘big three’:

Zero Waste

We work towards zero waste – or what’s known as a circular economy – and help our customers bring their resources to life.

Sticking to our values

We’re recognised by our customers as being the best in the business for our expertise, reliability, innovation – and above all, our ethics.

Helping your business do its bit

We care about Scotland’s tomorrow and that’s why we won’t compromise when it comes to protecting the environment. We’re here to help make your business more sustainable.


Our Story

At Cireco, we’re passionate about helping businesses make the most of their waste and we have been since we started out in 2014.

We've come a long way in a relatively short space of time and will always do what matters to us – and to our customers – and that’s being better and smarter with our resources and doing our best for Scotland.

We're not a big corporate business but we think that works in our favour, especially as self-sufficiency has always been at the forefront of our vision.

We’re unique because of our values and our commitment to you and your business.

Our Team


Our Team

We’re headed up by Robin Baird, a waste strategy and management enthusiast (yes, really) with over 20 years’ experience in the field of waste strategy and management under his belt. Cireco is about more than one person, however, and we take pride in our collective strength.

Knowledge is power


Knowledge is power

Our power lies in our size and we employ a small but mighty team of just over 200 staff who know just about everything there is to know about waste and recycling.

Strength in numbers
