Introducing Renewi

Making more from waste

Shanks mechanical biological treatment plant at Dumfries and Galloway


Renewi, created in 2017 by the merger of Shanks Group plc and Van Gansewinkel Groep B.V., is a leading waste-to-product business ideally positioned to be part of the solution to some of the main environmental problems facing society today: reducing waste, avoiding pollution, and preventing the unnecessary use of finite natural resources.


Listed on the London Stock Exchange and a constituent of the FTSE 250 index, with over 8,000 employees across Europe and North America, we have deep expertise and an extensive breadth of waste management products and services.


For us, waste is a state of mind, an opportunity. When we take away someone’s waste we then give it new life. We transform a wide range of used materials into useful products and raw materials for our customers, like recycled paper, metal, plastic and glass, woodchips, compost, energy, fuel, and other products.


In the process we protect the world from contamination, preserve finite natural resources, and enable customers to meet their sustainability goals.With our deep international expertise we also provide our customers with an extensive product range, combined with local service and attention.

Our four key divisions are:

  • Commercial
  • Hazardous
  • Municipal
  • Monostreams


Above all, our team is committed and passionate about our mission:waste no more.


Out Strategy


Our strategy has been constant and consistent, with core market-facing divisions, each with a clear view on how to deliver performance for each end market. We have strategic priorities which span across the Group and have positioned us as a leading waste-to-product company.


As we have increased the breadth of our company, our strategy has evolved in two areas. Firstly, we have an overarching group strategic priority to deliver the benefits of the merger. We will do this by delivering the synergies we have committed to and by driving growth over the longer term. Secondly, we have introduced a new business division called monostreams which is a collection of businesses focused on specific end markets such as glass and electronics.  We use the latest technologies such as mechanical biological treatment plants that treat waste and use composting or anaerobic digestion to turn it into useful products and materials recovery facilities which prepare recycled materials for re-use.
