Who we work with
The AHPs for the West Midlands facility are being delivered to the site for processing by local operators such as Greener Options, regional operators such as Trust Hygiene and Green Bottoms as well as national commercial waste operators, including PHS All Clear, Initial Rentokil, OCS/Cannon Hygiene and SCRL. These operators collect this waste from washrooms, hospitals, elderly nursing facilities and child care nurseries and were some of the first to recognize the need to improve sustainability for themselves and their customers. Read what some of our customers say about the Knowaste opportunity:
Anthony Pearlgood, Commercial Director of PHS All Clear, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to recycle a waste stream that historically, no one has been able to recycle. PHS All Clear is recycling significant tonnages with Knowaste and helping to develop a AHP recycling network throughout the United Kingdom offering zero landfill to our clients.
"As one of the UK`s leading collectors of clinical waste we feel that we have a duty to work with the market leader. In doing this we have identified Knowaste as our preferred supplier. Their state-of-the-art technology and progressive strategy complements that of PHS.
"Our aim is to divert as much waste away from landfill as possible and this is the right time and opportunity to do so.”
Specialist Services Divisional Director at OCS, said: "The operational opening of the Knowaste plant represents true progress for all organisations that collect absorbent hygiene waste. "We are now able to move forward with improved sustainability, meeting both the business aims of OCS/Cannon Hygiene and many of our customers.
"This Knowaste technology is setting us on a new path environmentally and we look forward to recycling greater quantities of AHP waste both in the Midlands and across the UK as more Knowaste facilities emerge.”
