    Jonathan Timney

    Director of Estates, Bristol Zoo

    “It is estimated that Metered Dose Inhalers currently contribute to approximately 4% of the carbon footprint of the NHS, therefore it is vital that we ensure inhalers we dispense are disposed of in the most appropriate way, such as through recycling methods provided by Grundon Waste Management.”

    Oliver Newman

    Assistant Divisional Manager, Swansea Bay University Health Board

    Neil Priscott

    Chief Operating Officer, Gloucestershire County Cricket Club

    “The big thing to take away is to understand that data collection is really important and should be celebrated. The granular information we now have from Grundon – and our wider information around reducing carbon emissions – means we can present hard facts to our colleagues, providing the necessary impetus to effect change for the future. ”

    Peter Watts


    “Without being able to measure our food waste we would never have known how much there was. We see this as a positive because it has given us a target for the future. ”

    Keith Field

    Head of Soft Services, Sodexo

    “This was the first time we had tried to achieve net zero for a large enclosure and Grundon’s aspirations were far greater than ours. It was a real learning curve to see the results that could be achieved.”

    Keith Field

    Head of Soft Services, Sodexo

    “With Grundon, we saw an organisation that wanted to work with us, to challenge us rather than just do what we wanted. They came up with solutions that enabled us to start pushing boundaries, they understood what could be achieved, and have continued to demonstrate new ways of working that exceeded our goals.”

    Peter Watts

    Rockvolt – a specialist consultancy for stadia, venues and events who work closely with Ascot Racecourse

    “Having Grundon on board has given us more control of food waste from the restaurants and cafés, we can manage it more effectively and to the standards that need to be achieved.”

    Jamie Denney

    Sustainability champion and Site Centre Administrator, Rushden Lakes

    “I’m pleased to say that we have made a real difference. Although it is early days, we are confident we can save more money as we get better at segregation, and of course, it is better for the environment too.”

    Janka Penther

    Restaurant Manager, The Cotswold Plough Hotel

    “We have a significant number of outlets who serve coffee and other drinks in disposable paper cups so this move makes complete commercial sense for us and for our tenants. The opportunity to introduce paper cup recycling by Grundon means we divert the thousands of cups that would have ended up in general waste, into recycling and it really does tick all the boxes.”

    Cyrus Annan

    Centre Manager, London’s Bond Street Shopping Centre

    “Introducing mixed recycling meant Xscape Milton Keynes not only exceeded its recycling targets, but also reduced general waste collections by 50% and the implementation programme was cost-neutral due to increased rebates from recycling materials. ”

      Frequently asked questions

      What is hazardous waste?

      Any waste that may be harmful to human health, the environment or both. Waste is considered to be hazardous when it contains substances or has properties that make it caustic, carcinogenic, corrosive, ecotoxic, flammable, harmful, infectious, irritant, mutagenic, toxic or an oxidising agent.

      Why does hazardous waste need special treatment?

      Hazardous waste needs special treatment because of its potential to harm people, the environment or both. The management of hazardous waste, including its collection, recycling and disposal, is subject to increasingly stringent and rigorous regulations – namely the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005.


      What does this mean to me and my business?

      In practice, it means that the management, collection, treatment and disposal of your hazardous waste is a job for expert professional operators, such as Grundon which has the right technical and practical experience, expertise and resources.

      What happens if my company doesn’t comply?

      You could end up fighting a prosecution from the Government’s Environment Agency. Fines can run into the tens of thousands of pounds and cost similar figures in legal fees and time spent out of the business in fighting a prosecution. Those who ignore environmental laws can cause serious pollution to the environment, put communities at risk and undermine legitimate business.

      How can I be sure I’m legal and compliant?

      The best way to ensure that you remain fully compliant with all hazardous waste legislation is to employ the services of a waste management that will provide you with their expertise and knowledge.

      At Grundon, we employ a highly-qualified team of Chem-Pack chemists and hazardous waste management specialists who are experts in determining the most suitable treatment and recovery process for each type of waste.

      Once collected, hazardous waste is taken to our Hazardous Waste Transfer Station, where every effort is made to push materials up the waste hierarchy. Our in-house expertise ensures that as many different materials are recovered, recycled, reprocessed or sent for energy recovery.
