We offer unrivalled capacity and capability for clinical waste treatment

Our nationwide infrastructure includes: 9 Energy from Waste (EfW) Incineration Facilities; 5 Alternative Treatment (AT) Facilities; 9 Waste Transfer Stations and 350+ Specialist Waste Vehicles.

We provide a transparent and accurate system for the management of your NHS waste


Our proprietary waste tracking software captures and monitors the data of all waste collected from point of production through to point of disposal, providing accurate online reporting updated daily and fully documented traceability at all times.

We use a state-of-the-art, industry leading vehicle tracking software

Using our highly advanced fleet tracking and telematics system our team can monitor the position of each vehicle in real-time, and divert the assigned vehicle to a route that avoids congestion or road traffic accident sites, to ensure the least possible amount of disruption to our collection schedules.

Our solutions are quality assured and compliant


We operate an integrated set of procedures to ensure that best practice and quality of service are replicated across our business to the very same high standards.

Our e-consignment solution improves sustainability and efficiency

E-consignment will work with both our bin exchange and decant services, creating a paperless system which reduces the carbon footprint of our waste collections and dramatically reduces the administrative burden of having to store and file paper consignment notes.

Our processes and procedures are regularly audited by external agencies

We are formally accredited to the following standards: ISO 9001:2008;  ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007.

We have unrivalled experience and knowledge

We have members on the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) healthcare waste special interest group steering committee, and have written and contributed to several CIWM papers on healthcare waste.

Our solutions are sustainable

Our approach ensures that waste is managed as far up the hierarchy as possible. 

Our Energy from Waste Recovery Facilities ensure that clinical waste is recovered as an energy resource, such as Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF), Steam or Electricity. We provide heat and power to seven NHS trusts with hospital-based incinerators.
