Testimonials / What Our Customers Say

  • 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.

    Talat Afzal Bury Metropolitan Council
  • There has been a positive reaction to the introduction of the bags supplied by Cromwell polythene. They take up very little room in the home and are small enough to be easily carried when used in conjunction with the wheeled bins.

    James Messer Scottish Borders Council
  • 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.
