Local Authorities

O’Brien Waste Recycling Solutions works closely with a number of local authorities across the region including Newcastle, North Tyneside, Durham and Middlesbrough Councils. Our wide geographical coverage, which includes 4 strategically placed recycling centres throughout the region, means any local authority in the North East is never too far from one of our sites.


Local Authorities
“The waste management reports produced by O’Brien are extremely beneficial to us, helping us to identify which areas in the county need further engagement”-Jo Blackie - Contract Team Manager, Durham County Council

We are able to process any waste stream from any of our waste processing MRFs. Our sites are utilised by local authorities as delivery and processing points for their waste collections, including:

  • General waste
  • DMR
  • Green Waste
  • Sweepings
  • Highways Waste
  • Wood

O’Brien provide local authorities with detailed waste management reports which enable strategic decisions to be made and waste contamination origins to be identified. Resident engagement teams can then focus on specific areas for improvement. Additional reports on waste data flow are supplied to help reduce the administrative overhead for authorities. These reports enable us to accurately predict seasonal waste volumes, define required working hours and on-site tipping times.

Our flexibility is valued by local authorities and coupled with our reputation for reliability. We take pride in our collections being prompt, our staff professional and vehicles well presented.

We also engage with local authorities on a number of educational programmes, such as site visits for local residents to one of our local recycling centres.

When your waste is collected by O’Brien, you can be assured that it is dealt with responsibly and with due care to the environment. All the waste streams we collect are separated at one of our regional MRFs with 98% of it being recovered for recycling with the remainder being diverted for ‘Energy from Waste’.
