It’s estimated that within a decade our landfill sites will be full. Coupled with this, businesses that send hygiene waste products to landfill are facing increasingly higher costs for doing so due to rising Landfill Tax.

The statistics make for a sobering read: each year around three billion disposable nappies end up in landfill sites across the UK with sanitary waste generating more than 200,000 tonnes of waste a year.

While hygiene products are an essential part of our everyday lives, disposing of them is increasingly becoming a financial and environmental burden.

Here at Simply Washrooms we do things differently. We divert hygiene waste products from landfill and instead, process the waste at energy from waste (EfW) plants. The renewable energy generated is used to heat and power homes, hospitals and businesses across the UK. Any residual waste products from the EfW process is used as aggregate in the construction industry.

This helps our clients achieve their sustainability goals and minimises their environmental impact while reducing the UK’s reliance on more traditional forms for fossil fuels.
