A specialist waste management company

Biffa is one of the UK's leading integrated waste management businesses. It is the market leader in industrial and commercial waste collection, one of the top three landfill site operators in the UK and one of the top three in municipal collection.

In 2012, Montagu exited its investment in Biffa through a business restructuring process.
