Ellgia was established by founder, Steve Crook in 2011 with a single customer, one vehicle and a service office in Cambridge.

Now operating over 60 HGV vehicles from over 4 separate permitted locations, employing more than 160 local people and servicing over 4000 customers demonstrates the evolution of the business into one of the largest independent waste and recycling management companies across the East of England. The company name “Ellgia” was born from merging the names of Steve’s daughters, Ella and Georgia, and represents an important message that regardless of our growth, size and complexity, we maintain a local family run business approach to servicing our customers with a differentiated service experience. 

Regions we cover

The company has evolved from a simple recycling collection business and has expanded its capabilities to the collection of waste and recycling from all sectors including domestic and commercial waste producers, processing capability for over 35,000 tonnes per annum of waste and recycling materials at 4 permitted locations sited across the North Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire and the ability to manufacture waste derived fuel in the form of solid recovered fuel (SRF) and Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) used to produce heat and power. 

We specialise in offering bespoke, cost-effective environmental solutions to commercial, trade and residential customers ensuring the highest levels of service, compliance, and management information.
