Why we're the perfect partner for you

You segregate

Segregate and store each type of specialist waste separately from your general waste

We collect

Either on an agreed regular schedule or you can contact us for additional or ad-hoc collections.

We treat & dispose

All your waste is compliantly and securely processed, giving you peace of mind.

Put your trust in a leading specialist waste partner

All of our waste containers are UN approved and we have our own fleet of vehicles operating across Ireland with dedicated waste disposal facilities - this means that we can offer you compliant, fully trackable and auditable end-to-end specialist waste solutions that will help protect your business, your employees and your clients.

Compliant waste management is critical in the protection of people, the environment and our communities.

Poor waste management exposes employees, waste handlers and the community to infections, toxic effects and injuries. Such as air, water pollution, disease and needle stick injuries.

Failure to correctly segregate, store, transport and treat healthcare waste can result in pollution, prosecution, fines and bad publicity.

The national colour-coded segregation system identifies and segregates waste on the basis of waste classification and suitability of treatment/disposal options.

When segregating waste you must consider both the appropriate waste stream (colour coding) and the appropriate packaging.
