Recycling to land

Whites Recycling operate mainly throughout Central England, and Eastern Wales. We offer a range of sludge disposal and liquid waste recycling services to Local Authorities such as Anglian Water, Severn Trent Water, and Food & Drink Processing outlets such as Unilever and Cargill. Our current sludge to land operations for non hazardous liquid waste recycles in excess of 30,000 tonnes a month for agricultural benefit.9.jpg

Recycling to Agricultural Land not only provides our customers with a cost effective solution to waste removal, but it is an environmentally responsible method which provides nutritional benefit to the receiving soil. This can be viewed as an additional string to a company's Environmental bow, as they are seen to be reducing their carbon footprint and supporting the local farming community.

Our large fleet of tankers collect non-hazardous liquid wastes from customers' production facilities and transport to locally sourced registered field sites for recycling. Waste is then applied to the land via the land owners preferred method. Most frequently the preferred method is injection through an umbilical cord pumping system, which maximises the nutrient benefit to the land owner and can reduce the risk of odour release.

Prior to operations beginning, Whites Recycling Ltd ensures that all necessary Environmental Registrations are completed and accepted by the Environment Agency. Whites Recycling employ an in-house Agronomist who oversees all registrations working closely with the Environment Agency to try and make certain that our operations are completed as efficiently and smoothly as possible. In-line with our Waste Carriers Licence and our obligations under the Duty of Care, Whites Recycling Ltd maintain a comprehensive database detailing all transactions applied to agricultural land, offering full traceability and an audit tool to our customers.

Whites Recycling Ltd has been recycling biosolids to land for over 30 years on behalf of Severn Trent Water and Anglian Water and many others. Our fleet of specially selected agricultural tractors and trailers allow us to offer our customer's flexible cost effective solutions as well as enabling us year round access to sites where access via lorries would be impossible.

Our local land bank incorporates over 4000 hectares of arable and grassland and is managed by our team of in-house field/farm liaison managers who have over 80 years combined experience within the industry.

Our diverse fleet including articulated lorries, agricultural tractors, with a variety of trailers, skips and spreaders allows us to offer services for both liquid sludges and sludge cakes and enables us to access land throughout the year.
