ALEX Smiles Ltd is a company dedicated to working closely with its customers to drive unnecessary cost out of their waste management requirements.
Based in Deptford, Sunderland, the company employs close to 100 staff and has a fleet of 40 vehicles ranging from skip-loaders and tippers to bulk-waste carrying, articulated trucks – all of which proudly carry the Alex Smiles logo and colours.
The core business is the collection, processing and recycling of waste materials generated by the construction, processing and manufacturing sectors.
The company is now one of the largest independent waste management companies in the North East.
From humble beginnings, the company has grown steadily to the point where it has a vast range of public and private sector clients, who chose to partner with Alex Smiles because of its commitment to providing top-quality customer support at truly attractive prices.
To ensure the best service, the company has a policy of continual investment in people, its fleet and facilities.
The company has invested millions in its purpose-built recycling and transfer station that segregates all plastics, metals and paper, which is then forwarded on to specialist companies.
The extension of the site to include a material recycling facility at a cost of £4m was completed this year.
The move to the existing site witnessed a huge expansion period for the company, which was recognised by the accreditation to ISO 14001, the international environment standard, and 18001, the national health and safety management standard, along with the accreditation to the Contractors’ Health and Safety Management Scheme.
Company director Stuart Smiles said: “We are very much a family-run business and are very conscious of our responsibility to the people we employ, the customers we serve and the environment.
“In the current economic climate, time and financial considerations are the priority for many companies and we regard it as our top priority to ensure that our customers get a combination of the very best service at the most competitive of prices.”
