C B Environmental Ltd and Clarach Bay Services Ltd are family owned sister companies based in Mid-Wales. With over 30 years in the waste industry the group has grown year by year from its small beginnings and now employs over 20 staff operating from sites in Capel Bangor and on the Glanyrafon Industrial Estate, Aberystwyth.

Services include:

  • Recycling
  • Responsible waste disposal
  • Regular recycling & waste collection services and skip hire
  • Sales of compost and recovered aggregates
  • Confidential paper & data destruction services
  • Fully Licenced Scrap Metal Dealers
  • Civic Amenity Site Operator
  • Public Weighbridge certified by Trading Standards

In the past we have been contracted by Ceredigion County Council to operate both the Glanyrafon Waste Transfer Station and Borth Civic Amenity Site and since 2001 we continue to operate the Aberystwyth Civic Amenity Site maintaining high recycling rates at this very busy facility.

2005 saw the purchase of a plot of land adjacent to the Aberystwyth Civic Amenity Site for the construction of a Material Recovery Facility and in February 2008 Rheidol Recycling Park received its licence as a Household, Commercial and Industrial Waste Transfer Station with Treatment and Asbestos Storage.

By 2010 C B Environmental Ltd's Quality Management System had been formalised and accredited with ISO 9001 and in the same year the company became an affiliated organisation with the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management.

The following year both companies gained new, green credentials with our Environmental Management Systems being accredited under the Green Dragon Scheme and our performance reporting under the Green Compas (PAS 402) Scheme for Waste Resource Management.

In 2011 the compost produced at our Lovesgrove Composting Facility from the green waste brought into our sites was accredited with PAS100 by the Association for Organics Recycling. Unfortunately, due to its proximity to a Site of Special Scientific Interest the cost of licensing the facility made this operation unviable and we ended production the following year.

In order to develop its customer service Clarach Bay Services Ltd, which trades as Ceredigion Waste Services and Aber Skip Hire, was accredited under the SafeContractor Health and Safety Scheme in 2012. This was further developed in 2013 by registering with the Constructionline scheme which holds a database of prequalified organisations whose operations are audited to government standards. Following on from this in 2014 the company also gained accreditation with the FORS and Chas schemes. Using this best pratice approach means a time and cost saving, as well as increased efficiency, for our customers and ourselves.

The C B Environmental Group currently achieves an overall recycling rate of over 70% and is looking to increase this by expanding our existing operations and increasing our efficiency with the aid of appropriate technology. For example, during 2014 the site licence for Rheidol Recycling Park was modified and additional equipment installed in order to become an authorised facility for the depollution and disposal of End of Life Vehicles.
