PHS Waste Management supports local NHS Sustainability Roadshow

PHS Waste Management, one of the UK’s leading waste management companies, will be supporting the NHS Sustainability road show on 04 December 2013 at Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group.

The Roadshow, which forms part of the NHS Sustainability 2014 campaign, is supported by Public Health England, NHS England, NHS Property Services and the NHS Sustainable Development Unit.

Featuring guest speakers from the NHS, public health as well as PHS Waste Management, the roadshows will provide an opportunity for healthcare organisations to engage with their fellow Trusts and learn about new areas within sustainability, whilst also sharing best practice success stories

Environmental Consultant for PHS Waste Management, Simon de Grey, Company Director at SDG Environmental Consultants Ltd, will be speaking at the roadshow to share expertise from a PHS perspective on an introduction to waste management and effective waste segregation in the NHS.

“It a privilege to be speaking at the NHS Sustainability road show where I hope to further cement the relationship between PHS and our key stakeholders in the healthcare sector” said Simon De Grey

“PHS is delighted to be involved and I am personally very excited about sharing my experiences of helping organisations create efficiencies through segregating its’ waste through the use of a new and innovative PHS online segregation tool.  I am hopeful that the roadshow will provide a great platform to showcase the fact that PHS Waste Management is a compelling force, and by working together to dispose of waste correctly,  we could produce significant cost savings. This certainly supports our vision of a leaner more efficient healthcare sector.”

Other speakers on the day include:

  • Professor Maureen Williams, Deputy Chair NHS Liverpool CCG

About PHS Waste Management 

PHS Waste Management, one of the UK’s leading waste management companies, specialises in the collection and disposal of healthcare, clinical, dental, pharmaceutical, and chemical and hazardous wastes.

Our inclusive operation is capable of processing waste as diverse as industrial solvents, laboratory chemicals, fluorescent lighting recycling and aerosol cans. In fact, we have the largest facility in the UK that recycles 100% of aerosol canisters

We are a fully compliant, licensed and trusted service provider, with a network of 26 Waste Transfer Stations and 3 specialist Environmental Permitted (formerly PPC) sites.

We understand that the legislation surrounding waste management is both highly regulated and complex, so ensuring the legal compliance, both of our own organisation and that of our customers, is therefore one of our highest priorities.

For this reason, we have our own Safety, Health and Environment Department who are responsible for ensuring the safe and legal operation across all our services. We also employ highly skilled waste experts and qualified chemists, who are always on hand to offer advice and support to help you navigate the often complex field of waste management.
