Waste Management and Recycling

Waste Management and Recycling

Willshees represents the very best of modern waste management, which is one of the reasons the company is growing rapidly.  While I was shown around by the director Dean Willshee he told be of the remarkable story of how his father started with nothing and how it passed into his hands and grew into a multi million pound business, an incredible story.   The company provides a range of services based on zero landfill, protecting the environment and saving businesses money.  Visit their website for more info

Below is a short video showing the waste being processed into bales prior to being sent for incineration. (please don’t judge me by the video it’s not my day job)  Waste can be turned into energy to produce electricity, while strict laws govern the flue gases entering the atmosphere.

The photos further down are a selection from the shoot, including the cardboard recycling system recently installed at Wiggle.
