Who Are We?

We started life as the National Association of Waste Disposal Contractors in 1968, becoming the Environmental Services Association in 1996. ESA members comprise 85% of the sector, including all the major companies,

As well representing our members’ interests in the UK and in Europe, we are also actively working to raise wider issues of sustainability and resource efficiency, to raise operational standards within the industry and to ensure the health and safety of our workforce.
