“Smiths were the chosen contractor again at this year’s Moreton Show for our refuse requirements. There were 20,000 plus visitors at the event but you would not know this looking at how efficiently the rubbish was managed. In addition to providing a great service, the fact that none of our event waste ends up in landfill is also a big bonus”

Melissa Harrison, Event Organiser, Moreton Show
