We are an established Midlands-based family business, protective of our environment and passionate about quality of service to our customers. Trust in us, with over 30 years industry experience we can be relied upon to get the job done as we understand that customer satisfaction is the bedrock of our business.
Fortress is proud to still be a family owned and run company, currently managed by three brothers from the second generation of the Pass family. We care and strive to provide excellent service and value for money. We have a passion… your waste is our resource. We want to extract as much value from your waste as we can.
Fortress is an innovative and ethical waste recycling company, led by a Chartered Environmentalist; we are committed to reaching the goal of zero waste of resources. We relish innovation; from becoming the first company in the UK to introduce weighing technology across our entire fleet to investing in the most advanced recycling plant equipment. We recognise that putting waste in the ground or burning it is a waste of the Earth’s resources, damaging to the environment and unsustainable on a finite planet.
All Fortress vehicles and equipment are maintained to a very high standard. Vehicles are purchased direct from the manufacturer with whole life Contract Maintenance Agreements. To ensure maximum reliability, Fortress has a policy of replacing vehicles after six years’ service.
Every vehicle has satellite tracking which allows our staff to pinpoint exact vehicle locations and plot routes to enable us to reduce the amount of fuel we burn. All containers are micro-chipped so we are able to monitor container collection activity and thereby provide a second to none service for our customers.
The company continues to evolve in a rapidly changing sector, as we strive to maintain our reputation as a market leader in the waste recycling industry.
“If we can provide the most reliable, friendly service, at competitive prices we will have a successful business. If we can do that whilst being the most innovative and environmentally friendly, we will have a great business.”
