ESA history

ESA: the voice of the industry

The Environmental Services Association was founded as the National Association of Waste Disposal Contractors (NAWDC) in 1968 before changing it's name to ESA in late 1996. Today ESA's Members represent 85% of the sector, including all the major companies, and ESA speaks on their behalf in Britain and in the EU. ESA:
  • Lobbies constructively for a policy framework which enables ESA members to operate profitably and responsibly for the benefit of the UK environment
  • Prepares sector health and safety guidance
  • Works to raises operational standards across the industry
