What makes phs different?
We are a business that helps our customers to better deal with the fundamental challenges of being human. We expect high standards of hygiene and live in a society where more people are spending longer in the workplace. The amount of waste we are producing as human beings is increasing every year as the population grows and ages. Given this increasing need for the products and services we provide, it’s our responsibility to find more sustainable and innovative solutions to meet our customers’ needs.

phs LifeCycle Strategy
Our LifeCycle Strategy enhances your environmental credentials by transforming your hygiene waste into sustainable energy.
As the largest collector of sanitary and nappy waste in the UK, we have partnered with energy-from-waste (EfW) specialists located throughout the UK.
The strategy allows us to divert the hygiene waste we collect from our customers away from landfill and into energy recovery facilities, to power homes, offices buildings, hospitals and schools with sustainable energy. The negative environmental impact of landfill sites can include greenhouse gas emissions and water contamination.
phs Group is on a path to diverting 95% of the offensive waste we collect, away from landfill and into the National Grid by 2021, helping the UK to achieve its renewable energy targets.
Alongside our recycled products and our water and energy-saving technology, our LifeCycle Strategy is another way phs Group clients can benefit from our environmental leadership.
