For our waste management clients Anenta, NRC and DCW, 2021 has been anything but a waste of a year, as all three businesses have continued to find new ways to contribute towards the circular economy.
DCW, for example, kickstarted the year by returning home to their new 18,000 sq ft state-of-the-art HQ, the Enviro Hub. Four years in the making and built to facilitate the company’s expansion plans, the Enviro Hub houses DCW’s plastic processing technology which is capable of processing more than 100 tonnes of plastic a week.
Converting waste plastics into plastic granules, DCW’s plastics processing machine reduces the need for virgin plastics to be manufactured. That’s enabled DCW to launch its own range of plastic furniture made entirely from the recycled material, drawing the attention of BBC Radio Devon and BBC Spotlight, alongside BusinessLive and Express & Echo.
Anenta, which specialises in clinical and healthcare waste, has also had an incredibly busy year helping NHS clients, care homes, GPs and pharmacies cope with the impact of Covid-19. That’s not only resulted in shortlistings for innovation awards but has also created huge demand for their services. As well as generating news stories around the issue of clinical and healthcare waste, we’ve been busy working on guides for GPs and pharmacies, all to ensure the correct disposal of waste in a way that helps the NHS save millions of pounds, keeping money where it’s needed – on the front-line.
