Jonathan Straight

Jonathan Straight is the Chief Executive of Straight Plc, Europe’s leading supplier of recycling container solutions including office waste bins, home composters and water butts.

Jonathan Straight formed Straight Plc in 1993, a supplier of container solutions for source separated waste. The company has grown from a one man band to Europe’s leading retailer of curbside recycling boxes, compost bins and water butts, as well as a key supplier of other types of waste and recycling containers.

In 2006 Ernst & Young named Jonathan as Entrepreneur of the Year and amid one of the longest recessions in living memory, the firm has repeatedly reported profits in excess of £1.6m. Jonathan has over 15 years experience in the waste and recycling and is recognized as the industry expert.

They work together with many local authorities, waste management companies and utilities supplying an extensive range of waste and recycling solutions including office waste bins, home composters and water butts. Their customers also include corporate businesses, facilities management companies, hospitals and educational facilities.

They are totally committed to their customers and through a development programme of continuous improvement they have maintained their position at the forefront of the waste and recycling industry. They have continued to grow, pushing boundaries forward with innovative designs and quality products coupled with competitive prices and outstanding levels of customer service.

Straight Plc is one of Leeds and Yorkshire’s great success stories and we’re very proud to feature Jonathan as one of our Centurions.

I support The Yorkshire Mafia because it is a great way for local business leaders to stay connected.
