Here at Green Bottoms we provide super simple, low cost waste services for the childcare sector

Why Us

A service designed for nurseries

Hundreds of nurseries and other businesses across the UK choose Green Bottoms and with our approach to service excellence, low-cost 12 month contracts with fixed prices and track record of environmental innovation, it’s no surprise that in 2012 NMT Magazine named us Nursery Supplier/Innovator of the Year. Whether you are a national nursery group or running a childminding business from home, with us, every service counts.

Designed to meet the needs of your business

We understand that your time is precious and how the hygiene and visual appearance of your waste areas supports your business and that’s why we ensure that our DBS-checked team members collect your waste on time. When you need to get in touch our team is easy to contact and our simple pricing and friendly contract terms mean that we’re easy to do business with too. The satisfaction of every customer is super important to us and so we’re proud that, when surveyed, 88 out of 88 of our customers said that they would recommend us to another business

 

 

Solving the nappy waste problem

We set to work in 2009 with the goal of helping nurseries be more eco-friendly by recycling their nappy waste. From 2011 to 2013, we sent all of the millions of nappies we collected to the UK’s original nappy recycling plant and since its closure we’ve been diverting as much waste as we possibly can from landfill by working with Energy-from-Waste facilities around the country. With numerous projects now underway to either recycle this waste or convert it into energy, we’re proud to be working on this problem and will always do the best thing we possibly can with your waste

A modern and socially responsible business

We believe that you are what you do and as well as being good to our world, we want to be good to our customers, suppliers and team members too. Our principles help us to achieve this goal; like ensuring that all team members are paid above real living wage and that all customers receive a fair price for a fair service. We don’t believe in imposing unreasonable contract terms, we don’t have extra charges hidden in small print and our contracts are for 12 months, as we want customers to choose to stay with us rather than be forced to. We believe that this is the modern and socially responsible way of conducting business

We provide everything you need

A simple fixed price with no hidden extras, a lockable external bin with a free, unlimited supply of tiger bags and odour-reducing internal bins and sanitary units available if required too

A service that works for you

Set your service frequency to weekly, fortnightly or monthly and we collect on schedule to ensure your waste is never overflowing and you stay hygienic and visually appealing

We take care of the important stuff

We dispose of your waste compliantly using the most eco-friendly solution that’s available and you get a free certificate that demonstrates ongoing compliance with your duty of care

Because we’re easy to do business with

Every four weeks we email your invoice and reports, our contracts are flexible if you need to upgrade or remove services and they’re only for 12 months so you’re never tied down

The service is great. The collection team are very friendly and have good relationships with the nursery teams
