About JustWASTE Consulting

JustWaste was created in 2004 by Director Justin Jones. The decision to start his own company came as a response to much frustration for the then stagnant nature of the waste industry. Now he thrives in being able to make full use of his extensive knowledge and connect operational landscape to strategic decisions.

He set out to create a company with a strong ethos for environmental compliance and proactive management that benefits the social, environmental and financial aspects of businesses and local government.

Justin was brought up within the waste industry when his grandfather launched Jones Waste Management to seek a solution for sourcing feed for his pigs. The Jones business grew rapidly into a waste management collection service. At the age of 15, Justin with his friend Randall started to work in kerbside collection and was driving the trucks as soon as it was legal. Striving for a whole business understanding and a desire for growth, Justin created a role for himself in the management team as a Sales Manager, later moving into communication and engagement with clients. Progressing laterally in the industry, he has spent ten years teaching and training within the industry as well as starting to advise policy in local governments and strategies within private companies.

With the creation of JustWaste in 2004, Justin branched out his contracts and applied his experience to decision makers. JustWaste maintained a strong focus on auditing, realising that this is the tool that generates the data and information that will in turn drive change and create improvements within the industry. Further, through continual learning and increasing the width of experience of his staff, the company branched out into strategy development, feasibility studies, development of approvals and licencing conditioning documents. The company also increased its operational focus through driving composting facilities to compliance and taking on transfer stations and landfill management.

JustWaste is now a growing business working in all areas of waste management.
