The boss


The boss

After a career in hospitality, Simon turned his hand to gardening. Upon discovering issues with removing the garden waste (and the silly prices people were paying for it) he set about finding a solution to those waste removal woes.

And so Garden Waste Away was born! The friendly, local waste removal company who won’t be beaten on price.

The boss


The deputy

After completing education Ethan also worked in a number of different hotels across Torbay before discovering that an indoor job was not where he wanted to be.

He joined the team at Garden Waste Away and now spends his time working outdoors doing a job that he enjoys.

Alright, so maybe not an official position but a very important one none the less. If you’re anything like us, you can’t resist a picture of a dog in their element.

Believe us when we say Lola is in her’s when helping to remove your waste! 


What People Are Saying

I ordered a waste collection for my elderly father, using his existing green wheelie bin. Order was easily placed and paid for as a one off service via the Web page. Order was placed on the Monday and the bin was emptied and even returned to the top of the drive the next day. Prompt and polite contact via email, the service couldn't be easier or more convenient to use! We will definitely be using Garden Waste Away again.

Brilliant service. Simon replied to my query promptly and was friendly, helpful and efficient. Couldn’t have been better. Picked up the bags once filled just as quickly. Would definitely use again when needed.

I contacted this business one evening for collection of garden waste (emptying brown bin) one afternoon and the collection was carried out the next morning at the agreed time. No residue was left behind. A very fair price was charged. I would recommend!

Had to call on GWA after our South Hams Council decided to stop collecting garden waste wheelie bins with no notice. The boss Simon responded to my message immediately and true to his word he was around on the Friday afternoon to empty our bin with no fuss and no mess, plus a friendly word or two as well! Highly recommended and we will most certainly be using his services again.
