We won the Business Improvement through Technology award which recognises a business' use of technology to enhance business performance through increasing staff efficiency and strengthening customer support.

Focus on Hazardous Waste 


How to safely handle hazardous waste 

Did you know that around 1.9 million tonnes of hazardous waste is produced by commercial and industrial businesses in the UK each year? It needs to be treated with care, but why? 

If hazardous waste is not stored or disposed of in a safe way, there can be detrimental effects – hazardous waste contains substances that are harmful to human health or the environment and can have serious effects on our climate and physical well-being.
