Testimonials / What Our Customers Say

  • As a professional purchasing organisation it is important for ESPO to work with a partner that provides transparent and reliable service and most importantly, always fulfils its promise. Cromwell Polythene provided the best value solution to meet our customers’ needs.

    Laura Maitland Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation
  • The decision to provide compostable liners free of charge to residents has greatly contributed to the success of the scheme … the liners assist in keeping odours to a minimum, ensure food waste collection is as easy and convenient as possible for householders as well as making the prices of emptying the caddy into the larger bin as clean as possible.

    Debbie Mansell East Riding of Yorkshire Council
  • Cromwell bags provide a perfect low cost solution for the safe collection of batteries. The bags enable BatteryBack to meet the regulations, while also offering low prices to our customers.

    Robert Simpson BatteryBack spokesperson
  • The council’s experience, using Cromwell’s five-litre compostable bags in our domestic food waste scheme, reassured us when we selected the 35-litre counterpart… the bags are performing really well.
